    Who would you send a hammer to for CCH ?

    I want to send the hammer on my 2005 Colt SAA off to have it color case hardened. Who would you recommend for a fast turn around ? Thanks

    Run'nIron - Bertrand, Nebraska.

    They've done several for me, and they were perfect.

    I forgot to mention they also do re-blueing.When I send them a frame & hammer I tell them to leave the lacquer finish off them.Some people like the lacquer,I don't because to me it looks phoney like some of the Italian cc'ing does.In the last 2 weeks I completely restored a Colt 4" storekeeper & an original early issue of an old Great Western both were CC'd by Classic,blueing was done here & both actions were re-built & tuned,the only thing I didn't do was the grips.

    Based on Jim's recommendation, I have sent half a dozen or so hammers to them and all came back perfect. I have also sent other parts, such as a 92 level and metal parts, a walker frame, and stuff I can't remember any longer. Not one single issue for any of it.
