Epoxy glue on bluing

1324 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Tron
Mid bead on my DT11 fell out, I took it to a reputable smith to have it replaced, he must have spilled a couple of spots of the epoxy he used to attach the bead. It is hard as a rock and I’m wondering if there is anything available that might disolve the glue without harming the blue?

i scrape epoxy from blueing with a sharp edge piece of copper. it will not damage the blueing. DO NOT use it on a glass beaded (satin) finish;. it will leave copper marks. don't know why he would have used epoxy. i suspect something went wrong.

Ok , here is the real way to remove it.
Use a blow dryer to heat it up and the edge of a wood stick to push it off. I had a Model 37 The previous owner epoxied
a buckhorn sight to the receiver to use for deer. It was a glob with a long thin drip down the side.. . Worked in a few minutes of heating.
Read to the bottom.
