    It amounts to a 3 day project & only one day of a kitchen mess .
    First day tear down the gun
    second day blue it
    third day put back together
    Tow of the three days you will do alone & out of her way . :p
    Get all your stuff ready first before tearing the gun down .
    You will need .....
    denatured alcohol
    rust blueing
    0000 steel wool
    rags
    cardboard box
    steam source
    old pan
    wood dowels
    wire to hang parts
    If you like DIY stuff this is a blast ! :cool:

    Hint
    When you take it apart ..... lay the parts & screws in the order yo took them off ....... take notes of problem ones & take a picture to reference when you go to put it back together . Then if there is a time between you don't forget the order or how many parts & where they go . :)

    Shag carpet is not a friend of small parts. When the spring has sprung and the parts have fell, you'll search and search while saying "Oh Hell!"

    Disassembling stuff where parts could be lost around here works better on top of an old pillow case or similar surface, good light, kroil, and screwdrivers that fit slots exactly. Research before starting helps me not look stupid in front of our cats but Management is not a kind person. Taking apart a pistol in a kitchen where Christmas cookies are being made is not a recipe for success. Have fun.

    In my shop situation ..... for now ..... I have launched springs & parts to parts unknown in the shop ! :p
    Some I take apart in a bag .... that works but tough to to when putting back together . Notes on what direction pins go in helps too after blueing .
    I take apart 3 or 4 at the same time but put the parts & notes in boxes with the name of the gun on it . It is all about finding what works for you & how you do things . :p

    When the department switched to Glocks, part of the training was teaching everyone how to disassemble/reassemble. Easily done one-on-one. Harder in a group of 10 grab-asses. Never did find one captive operating rod/spring launched into ? Went back to one-on-one. Deputy required to demonstrate ability before they got their new Glock. Learned to order a few spare parts to keep on hand before we issued new 870's and M4's.

    I found a new marking... With the slid lock on. I was able to remove the barrel. Slid lock holding slide back, I grabbed barrel, rotated, barrel removed.... Screenshot_20201203-231847_Camera.jpg JPEG_20201203_232021_7538216651932986055.jpg

    You are off & running PJ ! :p
    Did you decide how far to go with it & what you want to do to it ?
    HF is a good place for wire brushes & fine sand paper ....... just saying :p
    Note :
    All steel wool has oil on it when new .
    If blueing of any kind you will need to decrease it with alcohol first . And rubber gloves are your friend ! :D
    Especially around rifling ! :p
