View Full Version : Re-Blueing
03-28-2012, 12:36 AM
I got two gun, that I am curious what I can do to fix rust. One has a couple of small rust spots. I have oiled them, hoping they would go away but no. Is there a blue touch up?
Other is really rusty, really rusty. This one I am thinking would have to be completely sanded and re-done.
Any products for at home?

For the one that isn't too bad I would use generous amounts of gun oil and 0000 steel wool. Get all of the cancer off of the metal. You can get blueing touch up markers that are alot like sharpies to touch up small areas.
The other one might be best to send it off and have it professionally restored.

You can get small bottles of cold blue from cabelas, brownells, etc.

What they said Mr. Berserker...
Expect to find mostly....a pen..possibly two shades...from Birchwood Casy...most available
common..as well as..the Birchwood little kit packages..."recommended"...
No home job will usually be better than a commercial chemical performance...especially as to
common wear spots from holster/ammo etc...
But..not breaking my arm on my back...I have had some good results doing some myself, after
being shown how and some special tips from a friend..who was 45 year Master machinist...20 of
those for NASA.
If you want, I will post some of the information I have done and how...etc..if so, let me know here,
I will be back this evening. If the weapon(s) are any auto's...you may even check out Duracoat products
and procedures...a special paint and with special additives/accelerators etc...that can do a auto very
well and durable especially in flat black etc...unless you have already decided thats not for you.
example of what us guys have told you....
As I said....I have seem at least two shades..and dont let cap throw you...can be be darker
than cap etc...and take multi coat applies...etc..."with the proper prep/application-is the key "

Any tips would be great.
One is a revolver, less then the size of an eraser. Figure some day I may get it re done by a pro, but was wondering about something for now. One is the barrel on a semi auto. This semi auto has interchangeable barrels. The rest of the gun is ok. If someday I wanted to do it by a pro, it wouldn't hurt anything, since it really is rusted bad.
