Can Brass Be Blued?

Post by crosshair » Mon Mar 12, 2018 2:03 pm

Uberti .45 has brass accents on the trigger guard and back strap. Want to blend in with the rest of the revolver, or come close to it.

NO, it will not take the color, its actually harmful and will damage the bluing solution - tanks , and most likely start to disintegrate

you can polish, plate it , or paint it that's about it
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Just replace the brass with a steel trigger guard / backstrap......you'll never be 100% happy otherwise.....

1) No.

B) Why?

Leave it brass or replace it, or Cerakote/DuraCoat it.
