    Hi I am looking at building up a K-32 standard and i was thinking about having it case coloured has anyone ever tried this and who did they get to do the work ? Would it be possible to get a K-32 done in colour case hardening or would the heat involved be to much ? Would it be possible to post a picture of one so i can get an idea of how they would turn out. Thanks Scott

    It can be done

    cynanide gives just a brown and black- lower heat

    Bone(or similar media) in an oven- higher temp and potentially(or not) bright blues- yellows blues, red orange and browns

    Master Gunsmith Ed "THE TORCH" Lander is your man! If he can't ruin your gun with his exquisite Acetylene torch work, no one can. On second thought, he may be tied up, though, and you might want to contact John Allem.

    Talk to Rick Stover at the Cowboy way. 1-810-245-7040. He does the colors with bone and charcole. Very nice work.

    Doug Turnbull does beautiful case coloring. Once you see his work; you'll stop your search. Also; I don't think you can get cyanide coloring done here in the states anymore due EPA restrictions. Good luck, Larry

    Turnbull. Pricy but good. Considering that case color K's now is a $4000 option. At least that is what I was told by a respected,large dealer
