with propane torch; swab on solution, immerse in boiling water for 5 minutes and card with soft wire wheel or fine steel wool. There are several methods to blue gun barrels, such as hot bluing, cold bluing, rust bluing, niter bluing, charcoal bluing, and heat bluing. The blue appearance of the oxide film is also used as an indication of temperature when tempering carbon steel after hardening, indicating a state of temper suitable for springs. Use of a penetrating, water-displacing oil can't be over-rated (after the soda neutralization and clear rinse). Eighth, One of the simplest of formulas in the book works very well, a 2 percent by weight solution in distilled water of Ammonium Chloride.

Heat metal with propane torch to 150 200 degrease just the right tempeture so it does not flash off to fast, Heat again and add another layer,use only enough solution to berly wet the metal a little goes a long way and use the cotton ball only once per coat. Cold" bluing is generally a selenium dioxide-based compound that colours steel black, or more often a very dark grey.The mixture is heated to 310 to 321 °C (590 to 610 °F) and the parts are suspended in this solution with wire. Rusting times differ according to where you are in the world and the temperatures and relative humidity levels there, test and test again.

Readers: These instructions are for experienced smiths or chemists already very familiar with the hazards of strong acids! What I did wrong was try to tackle a commercial quantity rather than reduce by percentage this mixture to a 10-gun size mixture. If you’ve never heard of gun bluing, you are in luck because we are about to explain what it is and how to blue a gun to maintain its look and performance. Submerge each component in the water for at least ten minutes to remove any bluing solution residue that may interfere with the gun’s performance.Hot blue solutions may contain mercury bichloride and an alkali salt mixture of sodium hydroxide and potassium nitrite or sodium nitrate. If you like to shoot, work on guns as a business or hobby, or just own a gun, this is the place for you!
