The hot caustic bluing will be a lot easier to find a practitioner, and a lot cheaper than charcoal. Depending on what gun you are having blued, the slow rust bluing results in a deeper, more durable blue, but again would be more labor intensive/expensive than dunking it in the hot tanks.

.

I would further advise not to hot blue most double barreled shotguns, as the rib's solder might loosen.

I would have the same type of finish applied and by the same method as used by the factory. Turnbull has an enviable reputation but I am sure there are others.

As far as I know, Turnbull is one of a very very tiny list of people actually doing Bone Charcoal color case hardening. which is why you will pay his price if you want it, not just chemical color that looks like it.

Charcoal bluing is beautiful, but not nearly as durable as hot or rust bluing. I got a charcoal blued revolver from Cimarron some years back. They warned me. It was beautiful, and soon looked like it had single handedly tamed the West.
