Rich, Authentic Rust Bluing Process

This solution is a favorite of custom builder Phil Pilkington who developed it to produce a deep, rich, rust blue that's so fitting when restoring older guns and on high grade, custom shotguns and rifles. No damp cabinet or special equipment required. After two applications of the solution, the parts are left to rust for a few hours, then boiled in water, removed and carded. The process is repeated (immediately or as long as 3-4 days apart) until the desired color and depth are reached. Like any true rust bluing process, there's no "quick and easy" way to apply it, but then, nothing matches a rust blue finish for classic beauty. The 4 oz. bottle will do many guns. Instructions not included.
