1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    The gun was improperly blued and will have to be redone by someone like Wrights who will guarantee their work. Nice wood though

    ALF 99. I have one with a couple of small parts that are plum colored but I have never seen the entire receiver that color. When the OP said that it had new blue, I took that to mean the receiver. My local gunsmith won't reblue a Y model. I know Wrights say they will blue it and do it so that it will stay. Maybe the OP can tell us if the receiver was reblued or if its a factory finish.

    The brown tint is red in color in the natural lite. IT COMES FROM THE NICKLE IN THE STEEL WHICH WILL NOT TAKE THE BLUE FROM MOST BLUING SALTS. MARV WHITE

    It might still be the original factory blue as I have seen that plum color in the "Y" guns before. Also, in 1975 I bought a brand new Dan Wesson 357 revolver and the frame turned quite a plum color- --- it had a nice polish and still looked good, but the frame was nowhere near the same color as the cylinder, etc.

    I have a M12 Duck gun that was a Merlot color from a re-blueing job. It can be corrected by sending it to an expert in metal work. In my case that was Phil at Glenrock Blue. Its now a beautiful blue.
