    If you want the finish to be 'factory' sending to Remington would be the way to go. $200 is in the ball park. Wait till after hunting season as it may take some time to get it back.
    I have seen some DIY processes that seem to do a nice job. Gun shows usually have vendors selling different blue processes.
    A local gunsmith might also be a consideration. There are different 'levels' of blue - the deepness and richness of the blue can be dependent on the process and the buffing.
    The instructions with my Weatherby said the blue on the receiver on my Weatherby MK V took 8 man hours to achieve. So, different degrees of blue = different cost.
    Lastly, if you are not interested in 'factory' looks, there are several other coating process available that you might investigate.
    Good luck.

    I was handed down a Remington 1978 700 .30-06 wit the finish on the barrel and receiver worn off in places. I was going to refinish it myself with the DIY blueing kits but have heard it does not turn out well. I emailed Remington and they said they would refinish it for $200. Do you know any places or any other methods for refinishing the barrel and receiver?

    Why are women so adamant about abortions when there are other means, like pills?
