    The blueing on the new rifles do not seem to be up to the same standerd as a few years ago. I had an ancient Gecado that served me well for 15 years and never developed a spot of rust. I use to wipe it down with an oily rag about once a year and it got rained on, got covered in mud etc.

    Do they use a different blueing process these days?

    [/quote1148277688]

    There are three kinds of blueing

    1) Hot blueing, with hot chemical baths, most common
    2) Rust blueing (sometimes called cold blueing), don't know how it works but it is they use it way back for guns with soft solder on (hot blueing will eat away the solder), rust blueing is actually brownish, not blue.
    3) Cold blueing, good for touch up only, don't last long

    Some guns are also color case hardened. metal parts are heated along with leather strips and Cyanide salts over a pan (dry). you get multi-colored surface, mostly found on old revolver and shotgun parts. Extremely messy and replaced by a chemical method (not sure how it works).

    I will bet most airguns regardless of age are hot blued.

    I think it is not a different type of process but rather the blueing time is not as long and chemical mix and temp and so on are not watched plus steel with really high chrome % don't blue too well, some of those harder steel look brownish after blueing.

    They always say the older guns were hand fitted and hence better. The thing is they were hand fitted because they didn't have CNC mills. Besides, when compared to wages they used to earn, we are actually paying much less than for a guns of the same class so I guess we can't complaint.

    Maybe Industry Brand made a copy of the BSA? They like copying other's designs.
