Finnish magazine came. Fits fine though it is slightly narrower than the original. Could it be because they used 308 rounds instead of 311 like the ruskes

Dont ever do this. Leave the metal applicator in the can over night. It ruined my blueing chemicals. Diluted them so they hardly work. So I hopped on Amizon and ordered another bottle. two days later I am back to Blueing. Starting to look good but there are only two coats on the majority of the barrel. I think about eight will get it as dark and consistent as I want it to be.

Oh yes. I will use bedding. I can actually see the space under the scope mount. With this gun I want everything to be as right as I can make it.

Spent an hour bluing the barrel two more times. This makes 6 applications for the barrel. Did the receiver tonight too. But only applied it twice and it came out very dark. I have to hand I to Lother Walther the steel they use must be the best at resisting corrosion.

Lots of oil on it tonight. It will continue to get even darker even with oil on it. Should look even better tomorrow. But I think I will do just two more coats. I want it to look god even on close inspection.

Did one more application tonight. I am out of cotton applicators so i had to use a rag. Does not work as well. At least it is looking just about perfect. I do think that one more application should do the trick but I need to find some applicators. Maybe the cosmetics stores will have what I need. :|

If I had a stock I could go out and shoot her. But I don't. Bluegrass are you reading this?
