I got a customized Ruger Blackhawk that had a scratch along the barrel and I wanted to fix it. Well polished out the scratch and then had to reblue the area. So got a cold blue kit and first cleaned and de-greased several times. Then reblued the area about three times. Think it turned out out nice. First is the polished area and last is the finished gun. Was easier than I thought. Just did not rush it. Next will refinish a sawed off shotgun for brother that was neglected but very functional for a truck gun.

Hey Welsh,

Can bore 'em to death. Make 'em read the 30,000 words on the barrel! LOL

That's a pretty darn good match up with the original bluing, which is unusual for a cold blue.

I'm curious about the brand of the kit you used.

I've settled on using Oxpho-Blue from Brownells, it can be stubborn to take hold on some steel alloys, but it's been the most durable cold blue that I've used.

I replaced the alloy grip frame on an Old Model Blackhawk with a steel grip frame used on the Ruger Old Army BP revolver. It was "in the white", and needed to be fitted and blued. I used Oxpho-Blue on it, it's been 10 years now and it's still going strong.

Used Birchwood Casey in a tube seems to be a little thicker than the bottle. I had both.
That is a very nice looking job on that old Blackhawk.
