I use Pilkington's for slow rust bluing. You can still order it from Brownells.

I think it's great seeing the future stock and cleaned up metal. I can envision the final product and I smile.
I have turned my 513T Rangemaster over to my daughter who shoots it so well. The paper work shows it was built in 1946 and is still a great rifle. A friend used it for his Distinguished Expert 50' qualification and was disgusted because only 50% of his targets qualified (his fault-I wish I could still shoot that well). The Redfield sights are awesome.

The 510 that is almost ready for reassembly had the serial code that placed it being mid 1941 vintage. I'll be posting new pictures tomorrow. The barrel and bolt pieces came out very well however the receiver needs at least one more cycle through the rust blue process. I wish I had a better camera so all could see how well the stock finished out. Starting out with a very nice piece of wood helped but I went a bit further by burnishing the wood with 0000 steal wool. The final result leaves the wood as smooth as a babies backside.

I promised the client his rifle would be ready by COB Wednesday which it will. He's going to be dropping off two vintage doubles for me to work on next... Can't wait

My daughter is also a dead shot. I didn't have a 513 to pass to her but she was very adept at walking a soda can around the range at 100' with her Marlin Model 25N topped with a 4 x 15 Armsport scope.
