Cant explain it but I am sure you know what I mean .. the bluing that looks so deep its under glass. I may have not done something properly after I did the bluing but I did get a nice even black.

    Are these revolvers charcoal blued, rust blued, or hot caustic salt bluing? I like the blue process where you get that very deep metallic black
