Referring to my recent purchase of a Gold Cup National Match Ser No. 3444 NM and the blemishes on the slide, I would like to have this gun reblued in the original "Royal Blue" finish. Do you know who does this? Does Colt still do this? Would I be ruining this gun by having this done?

About ten years ago I had Colt refinish a pre-70 commercial, and they f***ed it up. Hopefully they care a little more about the end product these days.

If you guns is 90% or better finish overall I'd suggest leaving it alone. If you must have it refinished then talk to George over at Evolution Gun Works.
