I have a shotgun that I've had since I was born, which got left out side and has rust and pits in it. I want to find someone who will dip the gun barrel and assembly to strip it and re blue the gun to make it like new. I live in graham, tx and want to find someone hopefully some where close that can do that for me. Anyone know of some one I can use?

Fair warning, smiths can only do so much improvement on pitted rust. If it's deep rust on a thin-walled barrel, they may not be able to get it all out.
I had a gunsmith do the same thing to my grandpa's old shotgun that I inherited as a kid. He ended up parkerizing it because he couldn't get a nice smooth finish without taking too much metal off. It looks great and it's one of my favorite guns.
