1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I need to reblue my shotgun's barrels after the top rib was re-secured. On looking in my box of many tricks I found that I was out of blueing compound and was wondering which types people recommend. I've used Birchwood Casey stuff before with pretty good results but would be interested to hear what other people use.

    Thanks,

    JR

    Ballistol gives a great finish but won't last half as long as the birch wood casey stuff. I talk from experience.

    Well it's sort of half and half, really. It's an old Miroku (forget the model... 800SW? Something like that) but it's been used quite heavily and I'm not sure if a posh job on the barrels would give it the "all fur coat and no knickers" look.

    I have used the ballistol klever on three guns now and the finish is awesome a Hw77 I did came out looking like a proper reblue job and I was amazed. However, an hour on the range and the under lever was bare metal. I think its best for touch up jobs or for parts that will not be touched by hands the barrel of a co2 pistol being a good example. The meteor I did two years ago with birch wood casey has weathered really well in comparison.

    Looks like I'll be ticking with the BC blue, then. I've done a few rifle and my old .410 with it and whilt the reukt don't look like a factory job the finish seems to last pretty well.

    You could give the klever stuff a go mate to satisfy your curiosity it's a lot less work than BC see how you get on with it and if no good use the bc blue remover to take it off if you get poor results. It definitely gives a far better finish than bc but in my experience it's very short lived

    i used the ballistol last week but haven't had the hw80 out yet so cant comment on how long it would last.

    very easy to apply and great finish but meteors impression is it wont last
