Bluing guns at home
If you want to start doing your own re-bluing you are going to get into a lot more than $150.00. the cheapest I could get by with because you have to have so many chemicals to strip, clean, and polish BEFORE you blue. Then you have to have at least 2 Iron tanks. At least one tank stand that you could build yourself and a way to heat the bluing solution to 300 degrees F. I have over $1000.00 and that doesn't include a bead blasting cabinet and compressor. There is a LOT MORE to it than just dropping a gun barrel in a tank of salt.
The Oxynate #7 bluing salt is $155.0 a 40 pond can plus the hazmat shipping charge. And that 40 LB can will make 1 batch of bluing solution. Although it will blue probably 200 to 300 guns if you keep it clean and covered when not using it. They make a Chemical for that too. It;s about $15.00.
I have all the equipment to re-blus whatever it is you want. But, you would have to take the gun apart and just send me what you want blued. If you are interested in me doing it just send me a note on here.
Hope this helps, Roy Lane
