It's easy enough to remove the receiver cover ( 5 screws), strip the existing finish, then polish the metal prior to a random daubing with cold blue - like others here (Bobitis & Magical, to name only two members here) have done.

That looks fantastic!
Well done!
I wasn't sold on that pot metal taking well to bluing, but your work confirms that it can be well executed.

Thanks for the kind words, but that's not my work - it's pics posted here by other RFC members of their work.

I was simply trying to exhibit what could be easily done.

Some members simply strip/polish their receiver covers - look through the many pages in the Henry photo stickey at the top of this section.
