Though not abused by its previous owner, the factory finish of this Belgium Baby Browning was past its prime.
Ford's Master Blue finish is artfully applied, along with careful hand polishing to remove pitting and scratches from the frame and slide.
This unusual Smith & Wesson 547 was discovered with a spotty and unattractive Parkerized finish.
The bright, high-polish nickel finish from Ford's gives this revolver a shining appearance to match its smooth trigger and spot-on accuracy.
This mistreated H&R Sportsman 999 seemed to be a lost cause. The gun suffered from extensive pitting and wear on the frame, barrel and cylinder.
The clever application of a brushed-chrome finish successfully replaces the Sportsman's former sad appearance and brings out the unique lines of the barrel and trigger guard.
