Slow Rust Blue

Slow Rust Bluing:
If you want to do a restoration project on a gun that was your fathers or grandfathers, Lohman Gunsmith can bring your firearm back to life.

Slow rust bluing your barrel just like the gun makers did 100 years ago is almost a lost art and provides the best rust and corrosion resistance for you firearm.

At Lohman Gunsmith we do a hand polish of 320 / satin, 400 / semi gloss or matchless / high gloss.

Nitre Bluing:

At Lohman Gunsmith we generally nitre blue small parts like pins, screws, sights, thumb safetyand so on, but Nitre Bluing cannot be done on heat treated parts like springs, slides and receivers.
