Anyone looking to have their Colt Revolver restored. Colt is referring callers to this shop since they no longer offer this service.

I have a Diamondback in 38 Special that could use a re bluing. The starting Price is $495.
Thats more than I paid for the gun. Wish I could go for it, but its out of my league.

I always thought Colt made the best revolvers and have a few Diamondbacks and Pythons, but I am so done with them.  They're essentially on life support and apparently just want government contracts for M16s and M4s.

 

The place they referred you to in Montana is owned by a couple of ex-NYers I think.  Small world.  Hopefully they do excellent work and will keep vintage Colts working.

They do excellent work from talking with the service rep at Colt, none of the original Colt scroll marks or serial numbers are faint which is a common issue with re-blued Fireams. I use my 4" 1966 Colt Python for deer hunting in Pennsylvania since you can't use a semi auto pistol. It has minor holster wear, probably still 95%, probably wait until after the hunting season to send it out. I was thinking of doing a nickel cylinder, similar to the Python Robert Blake's character used in Electra glide in blue.
