Who can Re-finish an old hand gun?

Is there any shops that are good at re-finishing an old 1911 in the Oakland County area?

There is one place on the east side, who did custom finishes, but I forgot their name.

Tahnks for any help,

Considered duracoat?

If this is the 1911 from the '30s in your other thread, please make sure it does not have any collector value before you refinish.

Gander mountain also has services. Also, do a search here using the term "dura kote". I believe the guy goes by CCR refinishing. People seem to rave about his work.
