    Can SW refinish a pistol with a nickel finish that is originally blue? They show $235 on their website for both Bright Blue or Nickle. Is there a cheaper place than SW?

    Once upon a time, S&W offered "Change of Finish" from blue to nickel or vice versa at a higher cost than a straight refinish. I don't know if they still do, but I bet if you called and asked a human, he would tell you.

    $235 is actually pretty cheap for a quality refinish these days. Anything less would be kind of an Earl Scheib economy paint job on your Corvette.
