    Gun bluing

    Just wondering if anyone does their own gun bluing and if so what do they use and what is the process.

    Cheers

    I did an old rifle a few years back, it was 'cold blueing' and was ok, but didn't last very long. Sorry I can't remember what it was called but wasn't expensive.
    I believe it is best to 'hot blue' and I'm not sure if anyone can do it.

    Where's R93 he was talking about doing something similar like cerakote or .............
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
