    I recently purchased a 385kb to learn restorations on. Stock is decent, may sand it down and coat with linseed oil. I want to reblue the barrel, and I have been considering cold bluing with Birchwood Casey bluing kit. Comes with all the stuff to do this. Is there enough to do a 26" barrel? Has anyone else had experience with this product?

    I have a tube of Birchwood Casey paste & I get the feeling it's going to last for a long long time.

    The stuff is strong and it just takes a little dab.

    It doesn't really help to put too much on anyway. What you have to do is repetitive coats.

    By the way, please post some pictures of your 385.

    That's pretty tiny and fuzzy. Maybe see if you can get one about 1024x768 pixels?

    Bigger is ok, IF it's less than 1MB.
