Shorty's lookin kinda gray...

Well I'm finally starting to get some projects finished up here, too many irons in the fire causes slow progress , but I've finally finished up on the rust bluing project and the gun didn't really take on any kind of blue at all. It reached a nice looking gray tone after 4 sessions of the process described in post #1 and would not go any darker even after 4 more sessions.

That said, I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I think the gun looks great and I know the finish will darken a bit more over time. The grips were (before) painted a shiny black so I stripped that off to bare wood and stained them with a dark mahogany oil based stain and then rubbed em down with boiled linseed oil. So here are the pictures!

How can anyone NOT want a BP revolver? Seriously!
