Rust on outside of barrel
« on: January 28, 2009, 08:23:11 AM »
I have a couple spots of rust show up on my shotgun and rifle at the end of the season.  I can get them off but not sure what to use after I get them off to protect the metal?  I saw some new stuff that has three parts to it and you have to heat the metal, called Blue Wonder.  Anyone every use?

I have used blue wonder on a muzzleloader kit I had with an un blued barrel and it look alright but never kept the rust out. This was years ago. I think what I am trying to say it is like using a lacquer paint compared to a good urethane paint.

I read a customer comment on having to heat the barrel that turned me off.  Was at a gun shop yesterday looking the old bottle of cold blue and could not find it, local Wally World had nothing.  They had the Blue Wonder for their gunsmith but would let me have it for $40.  I told him no, went home and checked on-line at Walmart and they have it for $20 and that's where I read the customer comments.

PJ I could be wrong here but I am under the impression that hot blueing is the best route of blueing. Please let me knoww what dd says about this for it holds a big interest to me in that I have several pieces that I would like to redo myself.

You are right, Hot bluing is the best.  I do not feel qualified to do it.  Have used the cold blue in the past to just touch up.

From what I have been reading I'm not sure that it would be all that hard to do. Do you have access to an old pick me up that you could try it on. I am looking for an old single barrel to basically practice on to see if I can do it or not. I mean we will never know if we don't try right

Things must have changed?  Years back you needed a vat, heat, and such?    @--0--0117
