I had a couple of dings in a magazine that I wanted to blue to prevent rust. I used G96 Gun Blue from Bass Pro, follwed the directions exactly, and ended up with a big ugly splotch on the mag. I suppose I accomplished my goal of preventing rust, but how is one supposed to get a decent finish with this stuff?

I have never gotten a perfect (can see a mile away) match with cold bluing. It will serve it's purpose but I've always been able to tell where the spot is.

It looks like a better option is to Gun Kote the magazine. I'll need to find some other projects, though, as refinishing a mag isn't worth $40.

starting to spend a lot of $$ on this magazine... how much is a new one.


best cold blue is Oxpho blue from Brownells. a bit hard to find locally but chekc gun shops not Walmart

apply with 0000 steel wool and heat the part a bit prior
