Winchester found they were using a metal alloy that would NOT blue. They wound up IRON plating the receivers, then bluing them- and THAT worked. However, if the iron plating gets a hole (from rust, wear, etc) when you try to blue, it won't.
Yes, it's a Win. 94...not a pre, but has machined lift (so later post?)
I may try some ortho, but my guess is that they're all about the same, or will give the same results.
That's interesting about the alloy. I've not heard that before. Any references?
I may just try to do some pick work on it with a magnifier. If I can keep the bluing in the spotted area, I may be able to do enough dots to hide most of them. I don't know just yet.
But like I said earlier, it's looking much better with just the "new" screws
