JKA, any more advice? It seems I missed your additional information.
I had wondered how perma blue would work with the existing finish, so I pulled the feed tube cap first to blue the edges that always get worn away. The worn areas turned a nice black, while the bluing turned blue. On the end cap it's ok, but on my reciever, this isn't going to blend well. Any further advice?
BTW, I have done some work on the screws on this rifle, and it really does make a difference to have those cleaned up and looking right.
