I have a post 64 Winchester 94 Wrangler I in 32 Win. Spl. The finish on the receiver is starting to come off. The flashing is starting to show. I need/want to have it refinished. Conventional rebueing will not work on receiver. Also the receiver has rolled engraving that I do not want damaged.

Winchester does NOT do this process anymore. I have contacted them.

Winchester in order to cut costs went from forging to casting or compressing powdered metal, regardless conventional blueing will not work. They flash a metal onto the receiver to accept the blueing process.

Has anyone had their Winchester Commemoratives refinished?

By the way I am asking for help not criticism.

Yanqui, I have been refinishing guns for a number of years, there are only two finishes I know of that will work on these receivers. One is the bake-on finish from Brownells. The other is a plating process, you can go to Auction Arms auction # 2833376 to see one I have done. Alan

Well, I finally decided on a finish for my Winchester 94 Wrangler I. I decided to go with Rogard from Robar Industries. http://www.robarguns.com/

I wish I could have seen work from other finishers. It would have been nice to be able to compare the finishes. But the Rogard looked damn good. I decided to have it completely finished. I'm just a little uneasy on how the rolled engraving will look.

I dropped it off today and I should have it within 4-6 weeks.

I have my SRC back. It looks GREAT. I was really nervous about the engraving. But it is all there. ROBAR http://www.robarguns.com/ informed me that the fine engraving would be affected since the Roguard is sprayed on then baked. That did not happen. You can see all engravings. They did a fantastic job. The Roguard looks better than the bluing. It has a satin look. The walnut and Roguard look good together. I wish I new how to post a picture.

I plan to have them do all my work from now on. I do not own sidearm. But if I ever decide to get one I will have it finished in Roguard.

If you decide to have ROBAR refinish your firearm wait for the specials. I saved 20% due to the summer special.

I understand that http://www.bearcoat.com/ also refinishes firearms with engravings with a baked on finish.
