I recently bought a 1959 Remington 870 in 16 gauge. It's 100% reliable so far, and the action is as smooth as glass. I got it for next to nothing and have absolutely no use for a 16 gauge. My plans for it are to get it re-blued, and get the stocks refinished, then put it in the safe and let my son have it when I'm dead. Anyone know what that should cost or a good smith to do it? I know of shops that specialize in pistols and rifles, but I'm lost when it comes to old shotguns.
