      I was given a Remington Model 24 yesterday. It is mechanically sound and has a nice shiny bore and functions perfectly. However it was stored in a gun case for a number of years. The bluing is terrible and has some pitting both on the barrel and receiver. My brother has an original Browning that Remington copied for the M24. I really liked that little rifle and think I will enjoy this one also. I am not concerned about keeping it “original”, I would rather have something I can take out and have fun with the grandkids but I do not want to hang my head when someone sees it’s condition. I would like to have it reblued but hesitate trying to do it myself. What would the ball park cost be for a professional job?

      There is no problem getting it done here at MBT, and very few will take the care and prep time that I do. None of your lettering will be smeared by a buffer, and the only tipoff that it’s not original will be that it’s just too good to be true. I take great care that no bluing leaves my shop that is not top notch.
      I charge $250

      Here are a few typical examples of my work such as it is. Please observe the lettering carefully. No buff smearing in my shop.

      I’ll vouch for that being the standard not cherry picking . .
