When blueing remember to get the thing as clean as you can. And don't stop with just kne application of the stuff.


Thank you! And your absolutely correct about the blueing, it takes way more than one coat, and you have to clean the metal very well! Also after 12 coats of blueing, i'm still not 100% happy with it, have more to go!

My SV98 does have a full float barrel because the barrel is light compared to the McGowan or the GM pieces. I feel the stress of the barrel weight and the light duty Mosin Receiver are not compatible for full float set up. Otherwise it looks splendid. I know that my MS 308 shoots fine with a fully bedded barrel



Shepard
Thank you! And while I was floating the barrel, I was wondering if that was such a good idea. And since you have more insight on heavy barrels,I gonna bed the entire barrel. Once again thank you for your input! Will keep everyone posted to the rest of the build, and range report. I have some more work to do!

What blueing chemical are you using? I have learned the hard way that if you solution gets contaminated then it will weaken its affect.

Marauder uses that. I hear you can only apply it once though. As long as you do it right ti looks great according to what I am told.

One bit of advice I can get is where rubber gloves. Not to protect you necessarily but to keep oils from your skin off the gun and the chemicals.

I have talked with several gunsmiths here in south dakota, and many others online, in regards to the home blueing process, and they all say the same thing. Wear gloves! Well since i'm a firefighter and emt I always wear gloves, not for my safety but for patients safety. The thing I have noticed on the uk-59 barrel is this, the muzzle break and the barrel bushing (sleave) are a different type of metal. While the barrel looks great, its the other two pieces that are giving me a hard time. I'm gonna try the blueing designed for harder steel and see if that works any better.
