Default First Bluing Project

Here's a few pics from my first attempt at bluing. The first couple of pics are before I started....the middle one is after cleaning and polishing....the last couple are after bluing. Will post more pics after I finish staining the stock and put the gun back together.

Let me know what you think..

Thanks. Took it out in the sunlight this morning to look it over.....a couple of small patches that looked a little splochly, but overall it came out ok.....can't decide if left the blue on too long in places or if I just didn't get it as completely clean as I thought; but for the most part I'm happy with it.

UPDATE: Finished with everything on my .22. Re-blued the barrel, stripped and restained the stock, and, of course, cleaned, degreased and reoiled all parts while I had the barrel apart. Might, someday, replace the plastic stock extender with one made of the same walnut as the stock and will definately mount a scope on it in the next month or so.

Nicely done. Kudos.
