Great question. I have 2 and my brother has 1 that needs re-blued. I use to go to Flaigs, but they are long gone unfortunately.

Economy Gunsmithing

I had a 722 with heavy rust and pitting reblued last year, cost me $125 and the job was fantastic

Re: Where to get a gun re-blued

Regarding the pitting, it's going to depend on how deep it is? They were able to buff/polish it out on the 722. Any really deep pitting is gonna need some time-intensive draw filing and progressive sanding.

I'll tell ya I dropped off an ugly, abused gun and picked up a fantastic looking 222 a month later.
