I have a three screw backhawk that has some wear i do not care for. It is a regualr shooter for me but I would like to make it beautiful again. Tell me about reblueing. Does Ruger do it? Do I look for a local smith or should I protect the integrity of the old model?

The murdering vandals at Clark Custom Guns did a horrible job on the re-bluing of a 1911 I have. The blue is fine, the polishing job basically ruined the gun-- the lettering and serial numbers are practically wiped away. Be careful of who does the polishing. Also beware of the bluing method. I have one custom gun with bluing that I wore to bare metal within a few months around the trigger guard. If you do it, go to a bluing specialist that will do a good job, and expect to pay good money to have it done. Otherwise leave the gun alone.

Bluing is just going to wear off again. Why don't you get it black chromed?
