Howdy. For christmas my dad gave my son a Remington 1100 LW in .410 ga. It's in great shape except someone did a really sloppy job reblueing the barrell. There are drips and runs on it.

I've never dealt with a job like that. What can I do about it?

My son is 1 so no hurry--it'll be a while before he can even lift the thing and years before he's allowed to shoot it (dad's sure gonna try it out for him, though).

Some good info here Refinishing, its not so hard to do at home for decent blue job.

A real blued finish doesn't HAVE "drips and runs".
Sounds like someone applied a spray-on finish of some kind.

You have choices here: Strip whatever it is and apply one of Brownell's spray on-bake on finishes, or send it out for a genuine blued or parkerized finish, or send it out for one of the commercial polymer coatings.

On a great little shotgun like that I would have a pro reblue the barrel.

I would check and see if Remington would refinish the barrel.
