Frequently Asked Questions
- Does the finish withstand heat?
Yes. The paints used are generally automotive. The heat produced by firing a shotgun or firearm is well within the range of capability of these paints, (try touching a black car bonnet in the mid-day sun).
- Will the weapon rust when the blue is removed?
No. Provided any scratches or chips that have revealed the steel are touched up the weapon will be far more resilient to corrosion that it was when it left the factory. Gun blue has very poor corrosion resistant properties compared to the paints used in the process.
- Will the pattern or colour fade:
No. All patterns are sealed with clear coats that have industry proven UV resistant properties.
- Will the process adversely affect my manufacturer’s warranty.
Yes. If your weapon is still under warranty, and corrosion is covered, the fact that the manufacturer finish has been removed will render the warranty invalid. Our warranty will protect against rust provided care is taken and the weapon is kept in a dry, clean state after use. Disassembly will be carried out by professional and reputable gunsmiths at all times.
- My weapon is badly corroded and the stock is snapped. Can it still be re-furbished?
Yes. We have yet to come across a job that can’t be done, however, we cannot guarantee the survival of barrels if chokes are seized so the point that they will need grinding. In this case no work will be carried out and the weapon will be returned to the customer free of charge with instruction to de-commission, (postage fees will be incurred both ways by the customer).
- Can I post my gun?
Yes. Postage must be via RFD’s and at return postage must be face to face with an RFD at the customer’s end. You may drop weapons off in person.
