    I would just take all the blueing off, and go for the stainless look. :cool: Or, get youself a Blue-Pen, awesome for touchups, just sand with some emory clothe or 4 50 - 600 gripp sandpaper first.

    you can get gun blue from ya local air gun shop should cost no more then £5-6...

    get some wet and dry sand paper sand the bits witch need bluing and sand 5m over the good stuff. and once all the sanding is done follow the application instructions on the Gun Blue "bottle"..

    hope that helps

    personally if the blueing was very bad, id go along with austin and go for the stainless look. if its only the odd bit of blueing gone id get a pen or gun blue and touch up the rifle.
    hope this helps

    Forget cold blueing, absolute waste of time, space and effort imho.
    If the rifle is worth restoring, professional reblue isn't overly expensive.

    Here's one we prepared earlier (full restoration & reblue by CS Firearms):

    (Show me blueing of that quality out of a bottle, and i'll show my @rse on the town hall steps!) :D :D :D

    High gloss premium grade blueing from CS.;)

    We can also provide a bead blasted "tactical black" finish, as well as chome & nickel plate.

    The best bit is, it doesn't rub off like the bottled crap you dab on with a cotton bud! :D :D :D
