I like it. I have done some cold blue and could get the case hardened look when the steel was cool. If I want a true blue color I will warm the steel up.

The last one with the slightly more minimal color looks fantastic! ! ! ! Is the version in the last picture with the gun assembled a third try after the two in Post #10? It seems a lot lighter than the second try from Post #10. Or is that simply the difference in interior lighting vs outdoors?

My own H001 has suffered over the years and the paint has a number of scratches. I think copying your effort with my own Henry is going to get bumped up a few notches on the "ToDo" list.

You may want to look into a clear gun coating instead of the automotive option. The two part automotive clears are certainly tough as stones once fully cured. But they may not have the resistance to some of the usual gun cleaning solvents that the proper CeraKote or similar has. I think semi gloss clear Cerakote would look amazing over that finish.

I like the way you've got it set up now.
I like the contrast between the case hardened look of the receiver, the blued look of the two screws. The blue looked of the trigger and loop and barrel.
Also at least on the photograph, your wood looks pretty nice the way it is.

Very nice job.

Very nice work...I like it.

If you don't think the color case is bold enough, you could go this route:
