Refinishing Services

J&G Sales does not offer any in house refinishing services.  However, we do have working relationships with several vendors.  On you custom firearm project, we can source  traditional hot bluing, slow rust bluing, and stainless black oxide.  As well as DuraCoat and Cerakote coatings offering a wide range of colors and applications.

Recently we have added salt bath nitride treatment and electroless nickel with boron carbide.  These are the absolute state of the art finishes common for several years on factory firearms, now available on your custom project.
