    I am wanting to refinish my Super Black Hawk to it's original condition. I was hoping someone with some experience could point me in the right direction as to who to send it to and how much it will cost. It has some holster wear at the tip of the barrell, one spot on the barrell is rough its smaller than a pencil eraser. Also where the ejector rod rubs the barrell needs to be finished. I also love the jeweling on the hammer but it's rubbed smooth on half the hammer on one side. Any info or advice would be much appreciated.[​IMG]

    Why not just ship it back to Ruger?

    states: Revolvers and most rifles $130.00
    Ruger Service Fees

    i appreciate the info. although thought the comment was a little rude. posted the first post a few days ago didn't get a reply so I tried another category didn't think it would be an issue guess I was wrong.

    Jeez you guys need to grow thicker skin. Seems like every newbie posting lately gets offended over the smallest thing.

    nope

    Most take around 2 months on the average for refinishing.
    Contact them by PHONE, fill out the online paperwork& print, ship it off ( must be overnight ) Fed-x, UPS.
    They may or may not contact you for its return. usually a surprise:shock:

    I guess it's more about maturity than number of posts.
