Varnish over CCH on some SAA's

Recommended Posts

got a cpl USFA's that the varnish is thinned out on. Thinking of re coating but not sure

what varnish or if it's a thinned varnish, etc.

Also how would I get the old varnish off without damaging the cch?

 

anyone have any experience doing this ?

 

my thanks in advance

Maybe look on Colt Forum.   There has been some discussion about that over there.  I don't recall any saying what to use or how to replace.  Mostly its like or dislike.

Sperm oil is what they used to use. I don't know if that's available anymore. By the way, and this was news to me, Sperm oil is oil from a Sperm whale. It ain't any other kind of oil that might be implied by the name

Some Lustrum ago, I enquired of a "Quality" manufacturer what was used over the CCH.  I was told "Piano Finish" with no elaboration.  The manufacturer's representative(s) would not elaborate further.

My friend who has passed away owned a gun case hardening company.  When he wanted to cover the finish he used Brownell's Baking Laquer.
