I have a set of Parker barrels that I'm looking to have refinished in black and white. They also have a bulge that will need removed. Dale Edmunds is retiring, and I don't see a reference to damascus refinishing on Circle Fly's website. I did get a quote from Brad Bachelder. I'm looking for one or two more. Any ideas?

My friends and I have Pete Mazur of Grass Valley, CA do this work for us. He refinished the Damascus tubes on my Lindner Daly.

He is very good.

Get in contact with Ken61, a member here. I have a set of barrels with him now and another 3 being worked on by Mark Robson, before going to Ken for refinish. Both are in Iowa.

I met Mark Robson at the "Great Northern" shoot. He fixed the front sight on my Purdey. What a nice guy.

The bulge is the big problem. Tough thing to deal with. They can be removed, but the ribs will have to be removed in order to get all the bulge gone, then relaid. I have sworn off that job. I had one that we found had a tiny crack all the way through the barrel wall in the bulge, between the ribs. Bulges are just bad news all the way around, pardon the pun.

Exactly, Stan, but on damascus, it's a killer, no pun intended.

You already got a quote from him, but Brad refinished my Holland barrels over the winter and did an outstanding job with them

Aaron zimmerman is doing good work, but
Not sure if he can do anything about the bulge.

Merrington can fix the tube for sure.
