Chrome Moly Barrel Finish Options

If you are having a rifle re-barreled by us with a chrome moly barrel, you have a few options for the coating. They are listed below:

1. Polished Bluing: this is our standard option for bluing of rifle barrels that we are re-barreling for our customers. This is referred to as a “Standard Polish Blue”.
2. Matte Bluing: this is another option for bluing of your rifle barrel. The price for this option is slightly higher, due to the increased amount of labor involved.
3. Cerakote: If you are interested in having your barrel be a different color, Cerekote provides many options.

Please note that on Pre-Fit Barrels Standard Polish Bluing on chrome moly barrels is part of the package price.
For Matte Bluing on Pre-Fit Barrels, add $15.00.

Bluing Your Personal Firearm

We can also blue your firearm for you. Price is dependent upon the bluing finish, the shape of your firearm (if it is pitted and would require a lot of handwork to bring back to near new shape), and whether the firearm is received disassembled or if it needs to be disassembled and reassembled after bluing. The prices shown below are “starting” prices. Your firearm will be evaluated upon receipt and a finalized quote will be given to you prior to any work starting. Prices shown are for bluing only, and do not include any other services that McGowen Precision Barrels offers.
