gunsmith work
Matti Fine Arms is proud to offer professional high quality work and service, for always-honest prices. Because of our great know how accumulated in gun making and gun repair over more than 30 years of experience, we are able to execute some of the most difficult jobs. Most of our work has a turn around time of 2 to 8 weeks (check up, cleaning and general gun repair). But the time required to do work on a badly maintained and neglected Firearm, or if we have to order parts the turn around time can be quit a bit longer. The other cause for delay can be due to international shipping restrictions. A definite estimate can only be made after a close physical inspection of the firearm in question. For work not mentioned in this pricelist, do not hesitate to contact us. It will be our pleasure quotes you a price.

Rust blueing (Browning, black browning)

This is the traditional finish of the old European Masters and a must on soft soldered guns like side by sides, superposed shotguns and express rifles. This finish gives the best protection against rust and abrasion and is the best of all types of black oxide blueing techniques. It necessitates great patience and meticulous work. After polishing the metal is degreased and boiled in clean water then coated with blueing solution. Thereafter it is put away to rust for about 24 hours, boiled again, scratched. Depending steel and environmental conditions, this cycle is repeated 8-12 times. It takes about 15 minutes to explain, but takes the better of 10 years to perfect.
From 400.00 $ Can
