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.


Product used...


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...

Looks nicer. Just be careful w/ rust because now it is bare steel.

Why don't U send it off to be hard chromed. Just the barrel would probably only be about $40. They won't mess w/ the inside, just the external part. It would look similiar and be protected. Or, NP3
