    i am bluing a revolver with super blue, it has done a good job for a cold blue. the directions say to use barricade but all i have is mobile 1, will this be ok to soak the gun in for a few days till the bluing is cured? thanks

    Mobile 1 would be fine. Before the oil you are going to use a water bath or something to stop the bluing action?
