If you gun has rust marks, scratches, dents or simply showing it’s age, the barrels can be re-blacked to bring the guns finish back to it’s former glory.
After the barrels have been inspected by our in-house craftsmen, the process of re-blacking begins by removing the existing blacking by hand, and by using traditional methods including rubbing down with various grades of emery cloth and files. This is known as ‘Striking the Barrels’.
When the barrels are stripped back to the metal, all the imperfections are exposed enabling our craftsmen to identify and repair any dents (‘lifting the dents’), imperfection or rust pitting.
We provide a choice of different finishes :
The matte finish is a glass bead finish that is black and non-reflective.
The factory finish is a machined spun finish suitable for rifles, semi-automatic shotgun & air rifles.
A satin black finish often seen on most traditional shotguns.
Custom and high-end shotguns and rifles can benefit from a classy high gloss black finish.
