I decided to redo... or I should say "unblue" my cougar 8000F barrel. Here are some before and after pics as well as the process:
The barrel before removing the blued finish...Original.
This is the barrel with the blue remover doing it's work. I went through this process twice, Leaving the remover on about 10 mins. both times. I used some steel wool to remove the blued finish both times, pretty coarse stuff. I used "fine" steel wool for the final polishing.
Here's the result after using the remover and steel wool to take the blued finish off...
