I had a 94 .30-30 made in the fifties...until someone broke in.
Ihave a 94 in .32 spcl. They reblued it and were careful with the wheel but you can still tell it was polished. I've seen many different reblued guns that were ruined by the quick polishing necessary to turn out production. I have a Colt trooper with maybe a box of shells through it. I sent it back to Colt to reblue the barrel from holster wear near the end of the barrel. Along with other trainee mistakes they ruined the gun. It has sat in a sock, in the pistol case for over thirty years unfired. It is not safe. I would want to see some examples, of anyone's work before I let them touch another of my guns.
If you can live with the cosmetics, I wouldn't let a "smith" ruin it.
