Well I got started...
Had a used 58 and decided to go for it. Did a search on this forum on how to do it. Used the vinegar/paper towel method. Took longer than I thought! The bluing was tough! Still have some things to do. Going to patina the brass, put some plum brown on it and stain the grips.
I really like the pics you all have posted showing your pistols done this way!
I especially like the blotchy appearance the vinegar gives it.
I want to defarb it as well. Suggestions?
Many thanks gents!
