The threads on stock work and bluing are very informative. You folks have been great to share your experiences.
What tips do you have for stripping the metal before bluing?
Do you heat the barrel and parts to be stripped?
What product do you use?
How do you blend out corrosion or pitting?
Do you like sandpaper, steel wool, or something different?
Do you use alcohol or other cleaners after the stripping is complete?
Do you normally take apart the trigger assembly or leave it in place?
What do you do about non-steel parts to refinish them? (aluminum trigger guards, magazine drop plates, etc.)
I am sure I am missing something, just don't know what it is. Thanks so much for sharing, and Merry Christmas to all of you.
