I have a gun that I would like to touch up the trigger guard and tang. I am not at all familiar with blueing let alone some that might be do it yourself. Can any of you make suggestions? Mike

Here is what you need to do the job. Small bottle of instant blue, bottle of rubbing alcohol, 0000 pad of steel wool, liquid dish soap, can of spray lube, and some cue tips.

Use the cue tips and alcohol to degrease the part you want to blue. Pour some of the instant blue into a small cup and dip a small piece of the steel wool pad into it. Apply the instant blue using the steel wool by lightly rubbing it on the part. Keep reapplying until you get the desired coverage. Wash the part with soapy water to neutralize the bluing which is an acid, dry, and then spray with WD40 or G96 lube. HMB

Best cold blue I have used is Van's Instant Blue. Doesn't take off
original blue and matches good. Not a lot of prep needed - little
desgreaser and start using. Liquid. Can find on internet.

The areas mentioned are high wear areas, that's why the blue is gone now. Cold blue can look good but will wear off so quick it's not worth the trouble.
