Antique Pistol Finish


Shameless Womanizer 57929

Recommended Posts

I have acquired a 3rd Model Dragoon that has surface rust on the barrel. I read recently on the Wire about prepping and antiquating a pistol using a vinegar solution. Please direct me in the correct path. I need to tend to "Freckles" the neglected LeMat as well.

 

I have a black holster for the LeMat. I needs me won for the Dragoon. An open top or a cavalry holster will do.

Vinegar will remove blueing, and could antique if it is allowed to etch the steel. Don't. Get "Plum Brown" from Brownell's or Dixie Gun Works to put a brown finish on the gun.
