I had the same experience you did. That stuff just turned the metal gray.

I put my bolt in between two pieces of wood and clamped it in a shop table to hold it. Then I used a wire wheel in my cordless drill. It strips off the black stuff, but the wire isn't tough enough to hurt the metal of the bolt.

Worked great for me..

I offer a few different types of finishes.

If you would like PM me and I can polish/finish it for you to your specs.


Wire wheels will not give a "polished" look.

$25.00 + shipping.

After removing the blue/black, I was left with a rather ugly piece. Lots of scratches and machining marks (it's a WASR). Removed the bolt and covered it with masking tape. Reinstalled bolt and reciever cover, and using an exacto knife, cut out the tape around the part of the bolt that shows through the slot in the reciever cover. Removed bolt and went to town with #180 grit sand paper, then #400 grit, then #800 grit, then #1500 grit. Then polished with Never-Dull wadding cloth. I didn't use the Blue & Rust remover. The #180 grit took care of that. With some time and patience it came out real nice. If I knew how to post a picture, I would show you. Give it a try. You won't be disapointed.

I would also recommend mothers mag wheel polish after you smooth out the bare metal...Worked great for me.

Yes you will, I have done several this way.

Then you have to decide, will I "park her" or will I polish?

Again, I charge $25.00 for blasting/parkerizing or polishing.

Or just go www.gunsnet.net/Linx310/chrome.htm as stated earlier and save yourself the $25 + shipping and have it look just as good.

It' won't look the same (if you are going after the polished look), but as stated it is cheaper than sending it out.

Wire wheel on a Dremel tool and steel wool will not give the buffed finish of several grades of coumpounds applied by bench top buffer.

Another alternative is find a friend with a bench buffer and a few grades of polishing compound.

Have fun!
