Both look pretty good in the pics. Did you find one to give you a better finish then the other. Any heat involved.
I did a Matlin 336 lever action 20 years ago with a Berchwood Casey Cold Bluing kit and it came out more brown than blue but it was uniform. I'm hoping for better results this time. I thought I'd experiment on a worn K98 Mauser bayonet scabard before using it on a an actual gun.
