Browning a barrel

Afternoon

I have a Charles Lancaster S x S which has 30" Damascus barrels.

This gun is my day to day gun and has seen a lot of use so much so that all around the forend where I hold it is now silver.I would love to get the barrels re-browned purely from a vanity reason but I know nothing about it.The last time I got this done it took weeks to complete as I think it was climate related to the curing process (I am no expert).

I have seen some recommendations for members here who blue barrels but wondered if anyone knew of someone who could brown them?The last man who did mine has sadly passed away.I did see a product for sale to do at home but it involved heating the barrels with a blow torch then applying and frankly I am not happy doing that and potentially wrecking the barrels.

Thank you for all the replies, firstly I hope to get this done during the close season so time would not really be an issue although I know from past experience it is fatal to tell someone you are not in a rush!!

As to blacking the barrels I would really prefer not to do that,I think it would take away from the gun and to be honest on the few formal days I shoot it is always a talking point when I take the long brown barrels out of the case.

If I had money I would like another set of barrels made that had 2.75" chambers as it would open up a larger availability of shells.I shoot mainly woodcock and snipe and in the past year it has proved difficult to get 2.5" 7.5 or 8's which I usually use.

They're enough to give any shooting man a stiffy 👍.
