Looking for a refinish gunsmith

Some one who can do a good job on S&W break tops. A friend has a few, that he would like reconditioned and restored. (and don't worry, he's not going to have anything really rare, redone)

So, who do you folks know, that does a good job making old new again?

S&S Sporting @ 208-313-1570. They take their time when polishing, much of which is done by hand on revolvers like yours and will not polish any markings or proof marks off the revolver or round off corners. I've seen some realy scary refinishes that really make you mad. This guy is good, loves firearms and would not dare mess up a beautiful weapon such as you have. His prices are very reasonable and turn around time is pretty quick. He blues at least a couple times a week

Best Regards, John K

thanks guys, I'll pass those on. The guns aren't mine , but belong to a good friend who doesn't do computer much beyond doing his timecard at work. HE doesn't even own one! ON the other hand, I don't have a cell phone, and he does!

Thanks again!
