Who does a good job of bluing? Also, can a gun with a melonite finish be blued?
What level of bluing are you looking for? What are you having reblued?
I have a Nighthawk with nitride finish that I'd like to have blued. Looking for old school look, but not looking for Ted Yost quality. Frankly, I don't want it to be that fancy.
Talk with Nighthawk
The existing finish would have to be removed. Might be costly and I don't know if it can be stripped clean enough to blue. Also, if your gun is stainless under the nitride, it can't be blued like carbon steel.
This is a bad idea. Possible, but expensive for no sensible benefit. Sell and replace, or keep and enjoy.
Thanks for the feedback.
Agree with all above statements, from my limited experience most nitrided guns are Stainless.. And it is very difficult if not impossible to remove and preserve the integrity of the metal finish..
You might call and talk to Bob over at Nighthawk and have them see if they can remove the nitride finish and then have them refinish it in DLC.
I'm throwing the DLC finish out there incase your gun is stainless and can't be blued.
Hope this helps, Ray

I sent my NH Falcon in and had them take the nitride finish, burnish to their smoked nitride look. Very reasonable price and really put a finish on it I love.
Just a thought.
