All pricing for color case hardening is based on parts received disassembled, polished and ready to go in the furnace. We strongly urge that any parts previously case hardened be annealed before re-case coloring. This step should be done at the start of your project. It will make re-polishing and any filing or machine work easier and lessen the likelihood of warping upon color case hardening.
Metal preparation is available. We can strike (file), polish, peen, or weld at our shop rate of $85.00 per hour. Disassembly and reassembly are also charged out at the shop rate.
All pricing is subject to change and the condition of each individual gun being worked on. All pricing above reflects the minimum charges for the job described. Some jobs may be slightly higher based on the specific firearm. All return shipping and insurance charges will be determined and added to the final amount due. Payment is due at time of completion, before delivery. Some projects will require a 50% deposit. We reserve the right to refuse projects we deem as unsafe or guns brought in as “parts".
Please feel free to call with questions about your specific needs. This list covers our basic services but is not entirely comprehensive.
Wyoming Armory has some replacement parts for the Ballard single shot rifle, as well as the Winchester Model 1885. Parts commonly in need of replacing such s firing pins, springs, sears, extractors, lever and breechblock screws, breechblock links and hammers are in stock. Small supplies of original production parts are available for restoration projects. Due to the nature of original 1800’s production olerances, replacement parts should be hand fit by a competent gunsmith. Give us a call with your needs and we will do our best to get your old Ballard or Highwall back into shooting condition.
Wyoming Armory specializes in the restoration of all single shot rifles, particularly Ballards, Stevens and Winchesters. We can give an estimate on the necessary parts and labor to restore your old single shot back to “match-ready” condition, including new stocks based on original patterns. Trouble shooting “cranky” rifles is a particular area of expertise; let us check over that newly acquired rifle for problems in bedding, barrel crowning, or chambering. We can evaluate your rifle and make recommendations as to correct bullet moulds and appropriate loads. Lining of old barrels is another service offered by Wyoming Armory. We can restore that old barrel to match condition with one of our 4130 armory-grade steel liners, hammer-rifled with Schoyen-style rifling in .22, .32, .38, .40 and .45 caliber. Collectively, we have years of experience in fine-tuning the single shot match rifle, all of which can be put at your disposal.
