    Would someone send a name of a product, that will remove the blueing from the action of my shotgun.
    Thanks

    Don't laugh but I have seen a gunsmith pour a can of Coke on a barrel. I asked what he was doing and he said removing the bluing. It did to.

    Blood to will remove the bluing.

    Tidy Bowl or other acid type toilet cleaners will take it right off.

    The Wipe Away cloth is not acidic or abrasive. It's used by pistol shooters to remove lead in revolver forcing cones. I use it for rust, very lightly because it will take the blue off if used with a little more elbow grease.

    Vinegar, just household vinegar, orange juice will work also, these are both mild acids. Years ago I did some hot tank blueing, I would soak the blued parts in vinegar for a couple of days prior to blueing, it would remove the blue and any rust.

    The local gunsmiths recommend Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner. It works great.

    Not knowing these tricks, I used Birchwood Casey rust and bluing remover to clean up receivers on 2 1100s. After removing the bluing and having a gunsmith polish the receivers, the guns sold for at least a $100 more. Regards, Ed

    Use the Lysol and then polish lightly with Mothers Mag polish. The Lysol will leave the metal with a light brown coating, and the polish will remove that and leave the metal as new. XB
