Default Case color restoration?

Once Parker/Fox/Smith/LeFever ceased production and before Turnbull and Gaddy, were there places where one could have the case coloring redone? Wondering when restoring old guns correctly started to become a thing.

Frank Lefever and Sons. Not sure of their methods.

Delgrego did not do their own colors. They used Remington. To my knowledge.

I was lead to believe Delgrego used a commercial heat treat shop.

That may be the case, but i am sure they were not doing it in house.

Keep in mind I’m asking about the initial period after Fox, Parker, LCS, and LeFever shut their doors and before restoring American doubles became a thing.

And both Delgrego and Lefever had their roots direct from those operations.

Larry Sr. Worked at Remington on Parkers and Frank Lefever worked for Lefever, Hunter Arms and Remington.

So for the most part, that would have been the period immediately post-WWII
