Now that I have finished with repairs – it was time to re-blue the slide. I have used (with great results) in the past Brownells Oxpho-Blue (http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-to...-prod1072.aspx)

There is a great method of using this cold blue described on YouTube by Iraqveteran8888

Please note that steel-wool (which needs to be degreased) is required for a smooth finish, I have used Acetone (Home Depot) to degrease the slide.



After performing the bluing, make sure to wash your parts with warm water and then use WD-40 to eliminate and displace any water leftover.



…. And this finished the write-up for now, please stay tuned for pictures of the final result
