|Cold Bluing Techniques
There are several cold bluing products available for firearm hobbyists. All require the metal parts to be completely clean. Degreasers and solvents are used to accomplish this. The metal should look like a shinny Nichol
Once the metal is clean, the bluing agent is applied according to the product instructions. We recommend using a shop swab. Usually the bluing materials are wiped or dabbed on the metal parts using clean, lint-free cloth. Cold
bluing materials are often applied in multiple passes. Remember - The more times you repeat the process the better the bluing job. This allows the new applications to overlap previous applications and can be used as a tool to
provide a more even and uniform finish. Make as many applications as necessary to reach the color of finish desired.
Once the cold bluing is finished, an oil finish is usually applied
General Gun Bluing Techniques
Either process requires the metal parts to be clean and rust-free. Even fingerprints on the metal can cause irregularities in the final blue finish to the gun.
Handle all materials used in gun bluing with care. All are solvents or acids and can be dangerous if handled improperly. Follow all instructions and safety precautions included with the product packaging. Work in a well-ventilated
area and wear appropriate personal safety gear such as safety glasses and an apron.

If you have never blued a firearm before and you are not sure how to blue a gun please take a
moment and read these instructions.
Apply a quality lubricant to the blued area between coats of bluing if you are not repeating the bluing
in a very short period of time between coats. Always ensure you lubricate all the blued areas well to
ensure you do not get rust and finger prints to reappear on the weapon.
