Here in the States you can get whats called Cold Blue. You just clean the part and wipe it on. I have had really good results with it. Any pictures?

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

If you google "gun bluing" then restrict your results to pages from the UK, you will find sites like hese:

I wouldnt bother it false economy. All that cold blue is good for is the odd touch up on a screw.
Guarantee slap that stuff on in several coats it will come out like a patchwork quilt. Add to that it wont last 5 mins.

If you can do the finishing, the time consuming part, in long run it will be worth while taking it to a person that does blacking.

Hi KRV

It's not Chinese but rather, Spanish, I can just make out GAMO (El Gamo from spain), ASI(Anglo-Spanish Imports) used to be the importer and it looks like it may be an ASI Sniper...

Hi KRV,

I think that most of what we do can be classed the same way, costs more than replacement.  :lol:
