Depends on your budget, Turnbull is probably hands down the best

There are several outfits that can do a proper, old school blue. simonp is right to recommend Turnbull -- they're probably top of the heap, and can do a variety of bluing styles specific to manufacturer and era, too. You will pay top dollar for their work.

Glenrock Blue also has a stellar reputation. Ford's is still considered quite capable, too, though with a spottier record of late than it used to have.

Most quality local gunsmiths can do a decent standard hot salt blue if you're just looking for something basic and don't want to spend restoration prices.

What's your project?

Turnbull has a unique blue gray tint. for dark glossy though, I like Baron Tech or Monroe Ct
