recasehardening a hammer

Post by Jeff Michel »

I've just acquired a new to me rifle that sadly was not well cared for by a previous owner. The rifle cleaned up fairly well with the exception of the hammer. It must of had some rust on it at one point and the wingnut rubbed it so hard with I assume steel wool that he removed the case hardening. I spoke to Ona at Shiloh and she suggested that I email/send picture to Lucinda and she could provide some options. I guess before I waste her time, my question is. Does anyone have any knowledge of whether Shiloh will re caseharden a hammer or will I have to live with it?
Thanks
