    Default Gun bluing options

    Can just a gun barrel attached to a revolver be blued? The entire gun is fine, just the barrel needs to be refinished/reblued.
    It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

    Well to do it correctly it really cannot. The barrel will need to be removed from the action and then preped and then blued and reinstalled on the frame. You could of course use a "cold blue" and that would not require removal of the barrel. Or I have seen them done by just disassembling the gun compleatly and then blue the frame and barrel without removal but you are going to get blue salts seaping out of the threads and a general mess..................... easyer to just do it correctly.

    cold blue or hot, if you only do the barrel it will never match the rest of the gun.
