Default Damascus Refinish Recommendations

This has probably been touched on previously, but I'm wondering who is good at refinishing Damascus barrels...I have a grade 0 The Three Barrel Gun Co. I'd like to have the barrels redone.

Thanks,

Shawn

Bachelder's produces about the nicest finishes I have seen. They have refinished several composite barrel sets for me over the years.

Shawn,

I have several guns that Bachelders refinished their barrels. The work is of excellent quality, and I would recommend them. I've had one redone since Brad's passing -- same quality work.

Another recommendation of Bachelder’s. I have seen some of the work done since Brad passed and it is as good as anyone could ask for.
