    I used to own a M1 Garand and I had it re-blued. What kind of finish is on the Mauser VZ24 and what do you recommend to restore the finish?

    It should be a standard bluing job... not parkerized or anything like that. I couldn't tell you what to use if you're trying to get an "authentic" rebluing job done.

    I do recommend Blue Wonder Gun Blue. A member of this forum (kgnovum) gave out free samples a while back, and IIRC the guys here reported good results. I tried it on a small piece, and it worked like a champ. Very easy to use and looks great. I haven't tried it on an entire rifle though (I generally shy away from total reblues, as I attempt to maintain originality and authenticity on my C&R collection).

    This product is available from Novum Solutions.
