Classic American Gunsmith will not intentionally remove the manufacturer’s markings from a gun.

Any gun that has to be cleaned before bluing will have the charge for a DCOA added to the invoice.

Classic American Gunsmith uses Brownells OXYNATE NO. 7 bluing salts(MIL-SPEC C13924BAM1, Class 1, Grade A) for hot salt bluing.

Nonsteel (aluminum, zinc, magnesium, plastic, etc.) gun parts will be Cerakoted graphite black unless otherwise instructed. There is an additional charge for Cerakoting parts.

Stainless steel gun parts will be left in the white after being machine polished to 400 grit and burnished with a wire brush.

Guns requiring more than 45 minutes of preparation will incur an additional charge.

Machine polishing to a grit higher than 400 grit is available for an additional charge (not on hot rust blued parts).

Hand polishing is available for an additional charge (not on hot rust blued parts).

Matte finish is available upon request (not on hot rust blued parts).

During the hot rust bluing process, the action and barrel will be hot rust blued, all other appropriate parts will be hot salt blued.
