Vall - a tremendous improvement on that Schoyen Ballard. That hot blue job was a travesty on that rifle. A nice case color job was the way to go.

I blue summer and winter in my shop. Humidity can be all over the place. I use milder solution if I think it will get away from me. I too prefer lots of applications of very mild solution to get a smooth luster, however, I have to adjust my solution

The different hue thing exists, as to why I can not say. It may be combination of factors. Have you ever noticed the high proportion of Scottish guns which have plum tone to the blue? We are pretty dry here in CO and humidity is certainly one facto

Sounds a lot like what I do. 2x a day, 12 hrs between coats. I use a barely damp cotton pad or cloth t-shirt. Never thought about the foam brush approach. I've used Pilkington's, and I still cut it a little bit at least. My favorite was WinRest,

I like Pilkington's for rust blue myself. I put on light coat after ridding a foam applicator brush of the excess fluid, leave it to hang in my garage and boil 10 hours or so later. Two coats a day this way and done in about a week. I use it full st

When I go into a shooting slump that's exactly what I do to get my shooting eye back in. Trick is you have to MAKE yourself hold where the gun is shooting. It may take me a box of shells to hit anything, but once the hand/eye coordination is reprog

I haven't tried the phosphoric on hot blued parts so I don't know for sure. Best guess it would. Unless there is lots of pits with active rust I just polish of the old finish. Polish to 320 or 400 depending on how high a polish you want the finished

Always an interesting and top notch line up MG. It is odd that I've seen one of those Lyman no. 8 front sights, and it was on a Bullard single shot of all things. I had thoughts of picking up one of those Red River copies just in case, but who knows

And this Ballard used to be owned by a friend. I think it has the most lovely buttstock of all time. It was bought be someone that is/was on this forum. I love the way it reaches back to connect with its muzzleloading phylogeny.

Vall - that is a nice-looking Marlin .25-20. I do recall the details of this one. Cool that you were able to simply remove the added blue from the receiver and didn't need to have it redone. It kind of reminds me of a Winchester M1892 .25-20 I hav
