It has been a long time since I have needed the services of a gunsmith. I'm beginning to wonder if they even still exist in my area
(South Carolina). I have an early model Browning BAR that has a couple
of scratches in the receiver that need attention as well as having the rifle reblued. Everyone I have contacted doesn't seem to get involved with bluing firearms. I realize there is an art to it (the reason I'm not willing to attempt it myself), but years back (in So. Calif.) I could find several places within 20 miles.
Does anyone have any idea who I might contact in the South Carolina area?
Thanks in advance for your time-

I can't recommend anyone in NC.

The closest that I can recommend are:

http://www.apwcogan.com/

http://www.fordsguns.com/

These two companies are very possibly the best. Ford's especially is known for it's high gloss option bluing.
