    I would like to jewel my barrel on my 597, and make a unique peice..
    Ive been researching and trying to find the best way to get the blue off so i can polish and then jewel it.

    What tips would use/ give me for removing blue/polishing. Is bacially my question.

    Thanks!

    If you are going to jewel it, that process will remove the bluing. there are many blue removers. Most hardware stores carry navel jelly. Anything that removes rust will remove blue.
