Who does a good job and what finishes should I look for or avoid?

Also, how much $$$, and how long did it take for your gun?

If anyone knows of a 'smith in MO or STL area, that would be great, to avoid shipping charges and hopefully save some time.

These guys do pretty good work.
I saw a green molykoted AR they did. It looked cool.

This guy isn't local , but is real cheap.

CS Metall Werkes is a great shop, but I didn't know they did refinishing. I'll give them a call.

Any other experiences?

I sent a mag to www.bearcoat.com & got the flat black on it & it's great.

Should have done this when I was living in CO, that place was only about 30 minutes away from where I was living...

HKocher, go with Walter Birdsong, and his "Black-T".

He is the best in the business, bar none! I speak from personal experience.

Mr. Birdsong can be reached at 601-939-7448.

By the way, ask him if his ceramic Black-T is ready for use. When it is ready, it will set a whole new standard in firearms finishes.

I've heard DPMS does really nice re-anodizing.
I'm thinking about sending them My Purple Pre-ban Bushy.
