A short post today.....
After I blued my friend's Enfield No.1 Mk3 I realized that I had forgot to blue the magazine. These magazines were brazed welded together with brass, so they cannot go in the normal bluing tank anyway.
I sand blasted the magazine and set up my stuff to rust blue it.
If you have never seen the process done before, I have more details on my post where I rust blued the Ruger 3-screw Blackhawk, see it here
This is before:
I am using the Mark Less Express Blue
After two rounds
After four rounds...hard to tell the difference once the bluing sets in
After six rounds
After seven rounds the magazine was not getting any darker, so I soaked it in water and baking soda to neutralize the acids
Then coated it with Remoil
