For bluing and about anything else you need in general gunsmithing:  George Roghaar in Boca Raton, FL  I always do my own prep work and polishing and George tanks the parts.  Very reasonable pricing that way.  Never had a bad job.   http://gunblue.homestead.com/Index.html    My last job was this milled AK I recently finished but he has done a lot of pistols for me also:





George also did the slide and small parts when I restored this Frankonia CZ-75

You could ship to them, but it's probably more helpful if you live in sw PA.

They do NFA/Class III work, cerakoting, and typical gunsmithing, and at very reasonable prices (especially around here!).
They cerakoted my old Star Firestar M45



And last week, I had them remove and replace my old quad rails, because the Phantom comp was pinned/welded, and I couldn't remove that myself.  Not ONLY did they replace them, they SAVED the Phantom comp, which saved me dozens of more bucks on a NEW comp!

I’ve had great success with CGW for CZs and will be sending another CZ to them soon.

For S&W, I’ve had great success with Pinnacle High Performance http://pinnaclehighperformance.com/
Mark Hartshorne did a superb job acquiring, machining  and fitting an add’l cylinder in 9mm for my 627.

I echo the previous post advocating the SIG Armorer- top notch

ADCO is the #1 shop in the USA for pretty much anything black rifle related. Pinning, recontouring, threading, fluting, etc. www.adcofirearms.com/


M60 Joe is also the #1 shop in the USA for almost everything Title II related. Blow up your $20,000 receiver? He can fix it. Break your $10,000 Lightening Link, and he's the man. Baffle strikes? He'll fix that too. www.m60joe.com

Marvin Pitts of Nefarious Arms formerly worked for Knights Armament Corp (KAC) and does barrel work including the infamous KAC PDW barrel dimpling. He dimples the barrels in the exact pattern that KAC does.
His contact info is: nefariousarms@live.com

Examples of Marvin's barrel work:




I'll second Marvin Pitts and NefariousArms. Marvin is scary meticulous, a craftsman of the highest order.
