One disgruntled reader talked about accidentially messing up the blueing on his gun. For those who have an intentional desire there is an easy formula. Navel Jelly painted on will liquify almost any blueing I've found.

The purpose for this is preparation for a new coating... i.e., duracoat, etc.

The Navel Jelly is painted on (wear gloves, it is caustic) and then washed off with warm water. The finish will have a dull patina... actually the chemicals are a mild form of parkerizing. This finish will take a new coating and form a bond between the raw metal and the epoxy coating materials.

With a little polishing, you can bring the metal to a bright finish and then either keep it lighly oiled or coated with some clear coating for a nickel looking finish.
