We see it often. You’ve come into possession of an old rifle, handgun or shotgun, and it’s now sitting idly in your safe. Perhaps it was passed down to you by a relative. Perhaps you or a family member were active in hunting or shooting sports years ago. This is a common occurrence, so if this is you, you’re not alone.
Today we’ll view a few immaculately preserved color case hardened firearms from the late 1800s and early 1900s compared to the restorations we’ve completed on the same models.
We’ve worked tirelessly to ensure our color case hardening is as authentic as it can be. We are proud of the work we do and the connection we have to the original master gunmakers of the turn of the century.
