Default Blueing shotgun

Have wondered what type of solder do you use to hold barrels together that blues the same color as the steel on a double barrel shotgun. I have never seen this mentioned in any of the forums.

That is because it does not exist. Bluing only works on plain steel. Brownells sells(or used to) a product called 'solder black' or some such name.
