View Full Version : Blued to stainless?

Could a blued finish be changed to a stainless without having to buy a new bbl/bolt/etc? And how much would it cost if it could be done?

Hueco, no. Blued steel and stainless steel are two different animals. You can have your firearm brushed or satin hard chromed. In my shop the cost is $155.00 plus shipping. Some will charge more and some less. George

I bought an old U.S. Army issue that had been
"chromed" and they did not take the sight out of the slide when they did it, so when I went to go change sights, my gunsmith had hell tring to get the rear sight off.
