Touch up blue for 1960s Colt

Any suggestions? This revolver was improperly stored, needs to be reblued (down to bare metal) over 2 chambers and some other spots. It has the old
Colt almost black finish.

Don't try to touch it up. You won't be able to come close to matching the original finish. Contact Colt or a professional refinisher.

Either leave it the way it is or have somebody really good redo the whole thing. Otherwise it will look even worse than it looks now.
