Gunsmith For Blueing SW PA

I am having a hard time finding a gunsmith close to Pittsburgh that still does hot blueing for guns. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

What is the brand of gun? If its a Smith or a Remington you may have better luck just calling the factory and paying them to re-do it.

Economy Gunsmithing.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Another close option would be to try to contact the PA Gunsmith School to see if anyone needs a project.

Other than that, I know my dad hot blues, but only during the nicer months. He's located about 10 miles north of Johnstown.

economy is the best I've ever seen.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Used to be a guy near Rockland in Venango county...a bit of a drive....and used to be a longggggg lobg wait sometimes...but his bluing was absolutely beautiful...ive never seen anything nicer....if it is something important or fancy it may be worth looking into....

Re: Gunsmith For Blueing SW PA

I've heard good things about economy too. I saw a rifle that they reblued and it was beautiful. I'll also recommend Fred Carper in Washington, PA. He does really nice work and is a good guy to deal with.

Re: Gunsmith For Blueing SW PA

Thanks guys!! I called Econemy last year and they didn`t get back too me very well and wasn`t too sure upon pricing. Maybe I`ll call the guy in Washington if I can find his number. Man, I miss Flaigs in the north hills!!
