The pitting is in one spot up by the chambers. If it's not too deep and judged fixable by a gunsmith,how is it fixed? what does it all entail? Will the fences need to but filed down and re-engraved? yes this is another gun I'm looking at but only one will ultimately be purchased.

The gun has light exterior pitting near the chambers? If that is the case it can be polished out, 're-engraved and then rebrowned. Costly work.

That would depend upon a few things. I do not offer Browning as a stand alone service and only do it during larger restorations. I would suggest budgeting at least 700$ for that kind of work.

It is not a job I would take FrAnk. I am still not accepting most new work, pretty much only if I find a job interesting, like Brent's broken tang. That and I am not taking browning jobs unless it is part of a larger restoration. Nice try though.

The premium on the first gun is getting more worth paying.
It has all its original steel in place, including the bores.
Beside that, you are shooting with it the same day that it arrives in the mail.
Gotta be worth even more for that & not having the risk & potential disappointment from some workshop somewhere.
