    It isn't hard. I did a 530A last week. Shotguns are the easiest to re-blue, the metal takes it up like it is thirsty for it.

    Wow, that looks great!

    I have my grandfather's 22 single shot bolt gun. I may need to pick up a Blue Wonder kit and create a winter project.

    If it has that dark patina on it you must get it off with the Scotchbrite pad first or it will show through the blue. Proper metal preparation is the largest part of it.

    Get a $20-$40 beater rifle or shotgun and play with the take down to metal and bluing and see how easy it is. It gets rid of the nerves and builds confidence.

    I have an old single shot .22LR that would benefit from this, would be a great winter project.
    Looks good!

    I refinished an old Iver Johnson .410 that my grandfather gave me before he passed. It needed some love. I sanded the wood and refinished the stock, and I reblued the metal. I still shoot it regularly. Nothing wrong with sprucing up an old gun.
