    Wow... amazing work. I'm starting to regret passing up all of those chromed rifles and pistols over the years.

    Andrew, did you end up heating the parts before you re-blued them? I have not tried this in the past.

    I have had great results with cold metal and cold water, finishing with fine steel wool to darken the blueing. I have a K98 and a MKII Sten I will be starting on soon. Yours looks great!!

    Excellent job. You've taken what was to me an eyesore and made a beautiful piece out of it. Great work. It looks terrific now.
