7shortmag,
I threaded a pile of pistol barrels and made/knurled the thread protectors for a dealer friend. I used "Oxpho Blue" for the thread protectors by placing a quantity in a plastic container and submerged the thread protectors in it. Good even color resulted. Instructions say degreasing is not necessary, but I always clean with acetone. When I make screws/pins I do the same thing. Don't put any parts into the main container, it will cloud the solution. A late friend( 22 rifle/shotgun gunsmith)did really nice work with it by going over and over it, until satisfied. It took as long to do a complete rifle as it takes me for slow rust.

I have seen nice results by a friend using Mark Lee's Express rust blue.

Is the Mark Lee express finish durable though ? I have a little .22 bolt action to blue. I went to the chemist to have my old bluing formula mixed up. I know it works because i have used it so many times before. Anyway the chemist cannot and will not make it up as eu rules mean he is only permitted to sell pre-wrapped medicines, so he does not stock chemicals anymore.

Also as it contains nitric acid and copper sulphate (thats all it is really) he is not allowed to sell these things either.

So the only bluing solution i see for sale is Mark Lee's express stuff.

bonny,
If your "chemist" is in the EU, he should be able to get German formula slow rust solution. A liter has lasted since 1982( I'm not a commercial enterprise) and it works very well for me.

It cannot be sent via courier, no liquids. Even the uk suppliers such as Dyson will not send bluing solution off the mainland uk. The chemist/pharmacist i used to use was an ancient large animal veterinary practise. Nothing was too much trouble and the people there were professionals, not glorified counterhands.
