Museum Grade Recondition – Quoted by project
Focusing on preservation and maintenance, maintaining the historical condition and all the character of the piece. The same preservation services done at museums across the world. Complete disassembly, each component carefully cleaned. Addressing any needed repairs including parts replacement. Preservation services tailored to achieve the finest possible original condition.
Each restoration is documented through photographs, beginning to end. And while most client’s express astonishment when comparing their finely restored firearm to these photos, all express gratitude for preserving their Family heirloom for generations to come.
In many instances’ replacement parts may not be available, so we must create missing or broken parts. It is important for our clients to know we have a knowledgeable staff of machinists, experts in their field to accomplish this task.
When it comes to furniture restoration and repair, a broken or chipped stock is commonplace. From exotic woods, Gutta Percha, Bakelite, ivory or pearl, our craftsmen can repair any issue to return your piece to the look and the feel it richly deserves.
As so many other arts, metal finishing and rust bluing have become “lost arts”, faded from the gun builder’s skillset, replaced by faster, easier finishes which do not compare in beauty or ability to holdup to the test of time. Unchanged for hundreds of years, rust bluing remains to this day the finest in firearm finishes.
Our rust bluing process is based upon our own formulas, each tailored for the authentic look of each firearm. In the sub-tropical climate of West Florida, where conditions are ideal, the entire bluing process can take two to three weeks to complete.
