“Harry_Ola”Oh and I’d asked the guy about blueing it and he said it was around 3x the guns worth to re do it. I didn’t think it was too costly material wise am I mistaken?


Cold blueing can give rather good results, but hot blueing is better.
I use “schnellbrunierung” from Ballistol Klever with good results:

When this isn’t available in the US, Perma blue could also be a solution.

Make sure the metal is polished as good as possible before blueing. The smoother, the better. Also make sure the steel is completely free of grease before applying the blueing solution.
Brake cleaner works well for degreasing, and is cheap.
If I were you, I would try to do eveything myself, it isn’t rocket science after all:)
