Or, you could just bury it in the back yard for a couple of years . . .

Hope you'll keep us posted on what you do and a photo of the final results. For browning, I like to use the Plumb Brown - easy to use and control over "rusting" browns - at least in my experience on long guns.

Some fine examples of "aging" in the photos

Hawg . . . that aged Remy of yours looks like the same one my g-g-uncle lost just after Gettysburg . . . any chance your kinfolk might have picked it up when they took him prisoner?
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
