Default Baywatch Arms Gun Refinishing

After seeing the work Tim did on some other pistols I took in my P7 to Baywatch Arms off of 9 mile road.

Wow! Couldn't be happier with the work. Pictures just don't do it justice. He even did some custom work and put fiber optic inserts in the standard factory sights (something I've never seen on a P7 before).

What does having the sights converted to fiber cost? Rough estimate. Looks like really nice work.

FLWhaler,

Not sure what the price on the fiber optic conversion was. Tim was nice enough to include it with the refinishing job. He was intrigued with the idea of doing it, and honestly, I figured with my old eyes it wouldn't hurt. The refinshing cost me $125. He's really making me want to look for other projects....I can't count how many pistols I'd like to have that could use a bit of work.

Tim has refinished 2 of my handguns and I was thoroughly pleased with both of them. I did a thread on the Charles Daly compact 45ACP but I need to take some photos of the S&W 559 that he did recently.

I have had other handguns Cerakoted by guys who have done hundreds of jobs and I have to admit that you can put those weapons side by side with Tim's work and cannot tell the difference!!

I'm thinking about having him Cerakote my truck next.

Framerguy,

Your pistols are what drove me to get mine done. I have plenty of 3rd gen S&W's that I would have bought or traded for....but didn't like that they were stainless. The prices to send them out and have them refinished are really cost prohibitive. After having one done by Baywatch Arms (at a great price), I have to start looking for those 3rd Gen S&W's again!

Dropped by Baywatch Arms to see the inventory and was disappointed to find it closed today around 3:30 pm. In the market for a 1911 style pistol and a 270 rifle or a Mossberg 500 12 gauge. I am never on that side of town and today I was. I was hoping to check out the store but I guess my luck ran dry.
