Re: Type of blue that can be safely used on !945-1950 Smiths.
Thanks much Mark,Tom and Chris for taking the time to respond back.I knew that I had heard along the way that something was different on these late model guns but was not sure of the whole picture of things.One of my late guns was made the first day of production I believe with a serial of 43.It must have been in that recall lot that Chris spoke of.I do like the hot blue on the trigger guards that Tom likes.I just had one done up like that.The last barrels I had done,the gunsmith said he used a Prushion type rust blue on them.They look great and are a darker blue that's almost black.Thanks for the wealth of information you all provided.I hope to see you all at the Southern this year and I extend an invitation for you to attend our service on Sunday morning down there.Pastor Charlie.
