    WOW that looks great.

    How hard is it to do a "hot salt" bluing?
    Don't need details, I can look that up, just want to know difficulty level.

    Difficulty of the actual hot salt blue is pretty simple. Hang clean piece of steel from iron wire in the hot salt solution until it's the color you want, rinse and oil. pirate56 is doing Dulite, it's different. It's the quite hot fluid and metal prep that can be killer. For milsurp finishes there's not a lot of labor-intensive work, for a SxS presentation shotty you might be at it a while

    the process is actually a black oxide, the parts need to be washed in a very corrosive soap, and the salt bath is also very nasty stuff. we refer to it as a "salt" bath so it sounds green!! the bath runs at 285 degrees and is hell on your skin, hot or cold. it is not really for the home gunsmith unless you are doing a lot of guns. the chemicals are expensive, it uses a lot of propane and is a real mess. however it produces a professional nice looking finish.

    here is a photo of the setup, the top tank is the caustic soap, second is rinse, third is the black oxide solution, you need to disolve about 7 lbs of chemical iper gallon of water to get it to boil at hte correct temp. the last tank is rinse. after the rinse there is another tank with neutralizing / penetrating oil it goes in after the rinse.

    Th next photo is the wet area in our refinishing shop across the street from the main shop. we just put up a wall and airconditioned the back half that is the blasting and storage room. we have 2 cabinets, one for alox and the other for glass beads.

    It's not cheap, the mount weighs 60 lbs, and the gun is close to 40 lbs.

    I'm thinking the savings with free shipping might offset the cost of a barrel without holes in it. ( side ways holes)
