Default Rebluing, any recommendations?

I've got a 60's model A5 Light 12 and a BPR 22 mag. I'm wanting (thinking about) to get reblued. I'm not as much into collector value as much as I just like a sweet looking gun and will be shooting these as opposed to sitting in a safe. Can any of you guys recommend a quality gunsmith?

It is pretty easy to do it yourself, I made a tutorial a few years ago on arfcom on how to hot blue at home using stuff from walmart.

Here is the link to it, I wouldn't mind helping out on it if you want to knock it out on a weekend.

I saw an ad for a re-blue guy at the range on Quintette Rd. Today. Didnít get the number but if you call them Iím sure they would give you the contact info.

Cerakote it. Once I have my M70 rebarrel from the .270 to a 338-06 I'm having mine cerakoted. Heck I even think there is a cerakote option that looks just like bluing.
