I have a 12 gauge Nikko over & under shotgun which I am wanting to get refinished/blued.

I want someone that has the expertise to give my shotgun a finish that is equal to or better than it came from the manufacturer.

Can you give me some suggestions for gunsmiths that have a reputation for doing excellent refinishing work ? Please include website and/or telephone numbers, if possible.

Thanks.

You will want a genuine High-end re-finisher, and THE highest-end is Doug Turnbull.
They are world-famous for firearms restoration and do work for Colt and many other gun makers.

They have managed to duplicate most of the old high-grade bluing and color casing formulas and techniques, and do the best work there is.

Prices are high, but the quality is higher.

Other than them, Simmons Guns in Kansas has been specializing in high-grade shotgun work since the 1940's.

Other than these, you could just pick a high-grade refinishing service that offers better grades of re-bluing.
