Have a 31 year old Springfield 45 that I would like refinished. At least the slide. Nickel preferred, but standard blue would be fine. Any suggestions where to get this procedure done would be appreciated.
It used to be most gun smiths blued guns but not so much anymore. When/if you do find one you may have to wait as they usually won't blue one gun at a time, they generally wait until they have several before they fire up the bluing tanks. I would check your area first and if you find nothing you'll have to send it out which is usually the case now. There are a few gunsmiths that have youtube channels that blue guns so you may try contacting them
I'm sure there are people that will nickel finish a gun but I've never run across any...I have never looked either.
