A little oil from your skin can do naughty things to a blueing job---

It looked great till i got up this morning, the crane is really rusty and the cylinder ain't too good either. I don't know what went wrong but with no cylinders available anywhere it looks like the gun is gone. I do thank everyone for the help but nothing is working so i'll let someone who doesn't mind try to get it blued.
