Basically it's heating up the part, browning it with Brownells is Mark Lee's express brown to get the 'base coat', then re-heating and using the Oxpho blue paste to get the black color... seems straight forward, quick and easy, but, having been around long enough to know that somethings look easy but may be lacking... so I'm reaching out for experienced advice.

Looking to use this technique to blue a NODAK receiver.

Thanks in advance!

I'm curious about this as well.
Hopefully someone will have some knowledge of this.

Will do!

I'd like to try this but currently my free time is lacking.
I found this video, One hour rust bluing.
I wanted to try this method as it would seem to speed up the process.

Then he mentions Hydrogen embrittlement......
After a cursory googling of Hydrogen embrittlement I'm not so sure I should.
Thoughts?

Eta video....

Interesting process.

If you are lacking time I’ll blue what ever you have. I don’t charge.

some things are more text book theory than in real life. i think its more for high strength welded areas. i imagine alloy steels in firearms wouldnt be an issue anyways. its more of an aerospace thing.
