    Bluing job BOP

    Got a few bits here, want to to throw it in the tank next time someone's doing a hot bluing job. Anyone on here doing any in the future or know someone that is?

    I do the old style British method that is used on the expensive shotguns. I can do all of the bits for you as long as they are stripped back to bare metal.
    Toby and Gibo like this.

    Thanks all for the responses and PMs, didn't realise there were so many closet bluers out there!

    The pieces in question probably don't justify the time and expense of a rust bluing job, as good as they are. These are small bits form one project, and one older and relatively worthless gun as well, so I'd prefer a quick and cheap hot blue job. Thanks anyway, now I know where to go for rust bluing
