    does anyone know how to remove blueing? or better yet, does anyone know if powder coat will stick over a blue finish. i am unclear as to exactly what "blue" is... so...

    And for removel i have access to a tri-cloric acid degreaser (spelling?) and a couple other acid dip cleaners. would something like that work?
     
  2. what is your project exactly? refinishing a carbine?

    You can remove blue using blue and rust remover found at the gun shop or wally world. You can also sandblast.

    My recommendation for refinishing(in anything other than blue) is to use a product like duracoat, the brownells aresol can coatings, etc.

    If you plan to powder coat be very careful with masking. Remember that powder coating is usually quite a bit thicker than coatings designed specifically for firearms use.
