I thought I had heard that Dan Cullity did nice case colors... Have you spoken with him? What could be simpler - he’s right down the street from you.

Hodges mentioned Turnbull. I will add that I work exclusively with Turnbull’s shop for my Parker case coloring for two reason. One: they in my opinion are acheiving the most accurate colors on Parker guns consistently. Two: they have a very talented crew of gunsmiths that are second to none and their service provided to me has never been second rate.

I cannot say that I have been treated the same way by others.

Dan Cullity is a master at everything he does and i have used Dan's services from time to time. I am also looking to hold costs down. I've found a few contacts that i plan to talk with.

Justin Julian of Classic Case Colors LlC also does fine work. His Parker colors are getting better an better.

Malcolm Clark in East Haddam, CT is another good source for CCH and metal finishing. I used him for a few Parkers early on and for several fox guns. He ised to work for CSMC.

I have no idea. Brad was still living when it was there. I dropped it off on my way home from Hausemann's in June 2016 and they shipped it to me about a year later.

From the conversations that I had with Brad, my impression is that he was heavily involved in the entire process. It was his process. He 'owned it'. Parker Bachelder is now running their case coloring process to my knowledge.

I have a question. I've read on another web site that there is color case hardening and case coloring. The second one is done at a temp, but not enough to case harden the parts. It's more of a chemical process. It was also said that Turnbell [ along with at least Pietta ] uses the second process, but no talk if they also used a hardening process. Can anyone shed any light on this ?
