Personally I believe Dura-Coat would have been a better choice of paint finish.

All of the Enfields I've come across and restored did not have any blueing underneath the paint. I've only done half dozen or so though.

I thought about doing that also as I have a Stevens with a Dura-Coat finnish,however,the painted finnish was a test and it matched the original fairly well.
This Enfield had no blueing under the paint as well.
