Many gunsmiths, probably most do not do hot bluing because of toxic chemicals used and they don't do enough to make it worth their while to have a set up for it. However, most have a vendor where they send their customers guns to be blued.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I have used Wells Custom up in Nicholson Pa. He did very nice Hot Bluing and now is doing a Parkerizing job on a rifle.

If you don't have time to do it right. When do you have time to do it again?
