Has anyone tried using a tig welder to reflow the solder on a forearm lug for a shotgun? Curious if it will work? I'm pretty sure if i turn a gunsmith loose soldering it the traditional way I'm going to have to have the barrel reblued.
+1 on using the heat shield paste. It will work if you do your part.
Sorry for the delay.
I was hoping like mentioned above that it would only discolor the barrel enough below the wood line and not be visible assembled. I had a friend recommended a local weld shop for the attempt. FYI, this is an old Beretta Trap Special (TR-1). I paid about $450 for it. I like it enough to repair to shoot, but dont want to spend $300-$400 for the weld and bluing job.
