Hunter Finish Or Bead Blast Finish



Hunter Finish or Bead Blast Finish


Most of the firearms manufactured in the last 30 years were never polish by hand. Most were polished on buffers and sanders. With considerable skill these guns can be rebuffed and polished back to there original luster and reblued. This process still takes quite a little time but is much more cost effective than the restoration process. Time is the biggest reason for the price difference. There are four different qualities of polishing in the refinishing process that are available at Bose’s Guns

Winchester Model 12 Hunter Finish ReblueRemington 1100 Hunter Flat Finish ReblueRemington 7400 Hunter Flat Finish Reblue

Matte finish or Standard
Bead blast exterior surfaces or polish to #240 grit 

Description: disassemble, clean parts, blue, oil and reassemble 

The Bead blast finish will come out a flat matte similar to a parkerized finish. This is a good finish for the firearm that is going to get extreme duty or use, holds up well. As for the #240 grit polish this will be the finish that you would see on Winchester model 12. These two processes will catch most guns that were designed with the hunter in mind.

Fact:  Most rebuing jobs that can be easily noticed as being a reblued gun is the fact that the polish is to high of a luster on the firearm. Most of these guns were never polished to a mirror finish and is a dead giveaway.
