Have you considered rebluing it yourself ? I have been using the Birchwood-Casey Blue /Rust remover and then the Super Blue and finish up with several coats of oil. I have done several barrels and always an excellent outcome. Or you could just finish it with some Rustoleum Textures pain in black.

This is reblued barrel I did recently on a 410 with the B-C Super Blue. The 410 is showing examples with 1 coat and then the final third coat. Practically black finish

The other is my 16 gauge I did with the Rustoleum. The Rustoleum is well... awesome.


Rebluing with the B-C products is super simple. Bring it down and we can do it up for you. I have plenty of chemicals left.

I have Brownells Oxpho Blue. I think it is a little tougher than BC.(which I have also used)

The Brownells T-4 gives more even and consistant color than Oxpho . Supposed to be a hair less durable than Oxpho , it is still more durable than the mass market products.

Many shotguns are originally rust blued. Because vent ribs and double barrel can be soldered. And hot bluing will melt the solder.

I will agree that there may be other products out there that are better, even though I have never used anything but the B-C Super Blue, but, now that I have found the Rustoleum Textures paint I have no desire to ever blue a barrel again. I'm all about that waterproof / rust proof Rustoleum finish now.
