I have never been one to rely on cold blue for much of anything but after receiving my Argentine Hi Power I knew a refinish was in order. I made arrangements to have the pistol Cerakoted but having a bottle of Brownels cold blue I began the project. First the parts were cleaned with brake cleaner, scrubbed with OOOO steel wool and finally cleaned with alcohol. This process was repeated several times daily for a week resulting in a reasonably nice finish finally buffed with the steel wool and oil for next to no monetary outlay. I will probably go through with the Cerakote if my cold blue begins to wear prematurely.
