    What type of bluing is used on receivers like Brownings, Perazzi, etc.? Is it rust bluing, rusted then carded off, hot salts, etc.? I would imagine it is the fastest possible method, but it seems to wear off mostly on the Brownings, Perazzi's and such. Just curious. Anybody know for sure. Jon

    Most receivers are blued with caustic salts.
