Rust Bluing

Rust Bluing is a process of blackening metal parts that is very time consuming, however absolutely essential for double barreled and vintage guns that have soft soldered ribs and joints in the barrels.  Also, the look of a fine rust blued finish has no comparison.  Below are some photos of my rust bluing work.

I am currently not offering Rust bluing as a standalone service.  However, if it is required as part of a larger job, like a restock or a full restoration, I am happy to quote on and perform the work.
