As I have said I have been taking a well beat up M70 and basically rebuild it. When whoever resined the barrel channel when they went to get the excess off
they scratched the barrel good!
And there were scratches on the bottom of the barrel as well. So I got some Oxpho blue from Brownell's and this morning I decided to see about fixing it! this is the scratches on the side of the barrel.
Not the greatest pic but you can see the scrapes. This is after the first application.
Better but not all covered, this is after three more applications.
As you can see they are gone! Two things I learned about doing this it it has to be oil free! and then when your done oil the area as bluing is a form of rust! I'm not sure what would happen if you didn't oil it but I figured why take a chance! The stock is pillar bedded and almost done with the refinished and I will be ready to see how she shoots!
