Default Damascus Refinish

Can anyone make a recommendation for a person to refinish Parker Twist Barrels? These barrels have patches of light pitting near the forward third but are really pretty good in the breech end yet with the silver strips darkening some and reducing contrast. Is there a possibility of not stripping them but adding to and improving the existing finish?
Thanks!

Although I do not have personal experience with him, Breck Gorman seems to be the go to Damascus guy now. He is a member so you should be able to pm him.

Bachelder Master Gunmakers in Grand Rapids, MI did mine and does fine work refinishing Damascus barrels.

I have used both Breck Gorman for a 10 ga recently with excellent results, and Bachelder some years ago, also excellent results. Breck will likely be quicker turnaround.
