bluing 90% gone??



Log in to see fewer ads
my older 2003 model 60 has bluing thats almost gone from the barrel. i am worried about rust issues as i hunt in the rain. i have tried cold blue and it just won't stay. my idea is to use paint, what type paint would work thats also resistant to oils, or some other methods. the mag tube is still nice and blue so i will be wiping it down with oil and oil will be getting on the barrel. i can't afford to have it redone by a gunsmith, thanks for any help and idea's ya'll can give me.

Rustoleum BBQ paint is matte black and durable. I've used it on a couple of receivers and it holds up well. It's also easy to touch up if needed. Get serious about the preparation and it ought to work fine on a barrel.

DuraCoat , A very good coating self lubricating and very hard surface preventing scratching . Many colors including one that true to its name looks like bluing . DuraCoat guaranties gun will not rust if applied as per instruction . . I went and bought a cheep airbrush rig at harbor freight and it has now done 4 guns . You won't be disappointed . My water fowling shotguns have held up nearly 10 years in a salty environment coated with DuraCoat .

It's probably an indicator that your local climate has acidic or salty air/rain.

The "real solution" is to get a Stainless model 60. .

Otherwise live with it and just wipe it down real good when you use it. It will turn brown and it will sort of stabilize after a while.
