    Hey, ain’t that your pastor’s rifle?

    BTW, great job on the blueing, and I really like the contrasting colors with the screw heads.

    Love the nitre bluing on a Ludwig-Lowe. One of the most attractive bolt actions ever because of it. It’s almost a lost art.

    kens: Really glad to see you posting sir!!! The problem with nitre bluing moving parts is that it’s just like case color hardening. The finish is very very thin, and easily scratched, so just a couple cycles of the bolt would show bright marks everywhere the bolt touches the receiver. This is why, as a rule, nitre bluing and CCH are both confined to none moving, stationary parts.

    Rattlesnake Charlie: That’s the pastors rifle to demonstrate a lot of nitre blued parts in action looking schnazzy, and the screws to the custom 22 I posted.

    JPHolla: I dont quite understand your comment? The only “nitre blued” part on that rifle that I am aware of is the ejector spring, but it’s done that way as a matter of convenience more than anything else because nitre salts are used to read the temper of springs and the color is left in place as kind of an obvious expression of quality.
