Hi fellows. The purpose of this threat is to show gun lovers and amateurs regarding refinishing old gun. Normally we watch pics of customized guns on internet but most of the time could not do this for their own weapons..... By making this forum, an effort is made to show everyone how the things are possible. I start off with the stock but sorry after an endure of 3 days i realized to make this forum ................. My pardon for not having the pics from very start......... but today onwards i will paste pics in step by step wayyy... I will try my level best to show every stuff with complete details .

First of all what we need is an old gun..... one may start with a local made and the time one gets perfection may shift to real deal

Today is the day to make ground of the wood stock what all is required is sand paper (wooden) and my favorite 1000 grit sand paper.... rub in an elongated pattern gently. Choice and advantage these sand papers are to remove minutest scratch and very fine and thin surface .................. others destroy the grains of wood2775827759

Most important part that is bluing ....................................... Cold rust bluing the best so what all we need is stirrer, 100ml beaker and glass flask ...................... jar of flask must be of glass otherwise no results279632796427965

Solution..........................
its ratio is
Activated (foreign) Nitric Acid : Activated Hydrochloric Acid : Distilled Water
600ml : 400ml : 5 liters

08-01-2014, 04:29 PM
for making of solution......
First of all pour the two acids steer them............... add iron particles like nails but make sure they are clean........... in any case donot touch the acids as these are activated so these will cause swear burn27966

lifebreakking
08-01-2014, 04:32 PM
fumes will came out like shown.................... add in the iron till the time the acid donot accept eating them........ then add water and place it for a night to get the solution sattle down

lifebreakking
08-01-2014, 04:33 PM
i donot need too much of solution so i reduce the ration and make a solution of 30ml nitric acid.... 20ml HCl and 250 ml water

08-01-2014, 04:38 PM
now it comes the most important part ie making of ground ......... the metal surface......... the more the smooth scratchless surface you make the beautiful is the result ........... here we need 1000 grit sand paper and alot of effort2796727968

Ya one can admire my beautiful hands or the shining barrels or both.................... Hahahaha

lifebreakking
08-01-2014, 04:45 PM
now this part onward we will not touch the barrels with hands since your finger prints will came onto it ............ scrub the solution on the barrels in a very gentle way will malmal cloth and hang it in open like the way i did27970

lifebreakking
08-01-2014, 04:52 PM
leave the barrel for 24 hrs and a fine layer of rust will came on to it............ donot be afraid...... it happens...... next day take a utensil of appropriate length and boil water in it once water gets boil pour the barrel........... the rust will become velvet like after 10 - 15 min in the boiling water............ take it out and rub the barrels to remove the extra oxides on the barrel and rescrub the solution and hang the barrel after cleaning and drying it........27971

lifebreakking
08-01-2014, 04:55 PM
repeat the process of coating solution for atleast 7 times ........... this means its a 7 days process and you will get darkest shining black barrel... at the end...............mine is 5th coat today so i will show you the end result
