I have used Birchwood casey perma-blue on an old 410 and it was great. I wire wooled it all down first and then gave it about 8 or so coats. Fantastic stuff.

Agree with Andy. Birchwood Super Blue. Did an old Winchester Model 37 and it came up a treat.

As Andy said, you will get a better result if you wire wool the whole thing and do it all, rather than try and do a few blobs. It takes longer but you get a more even finish. I tried to touch in a couple of blood spots on my B80 S/A and it doesn't blend in at all.

Hi Joe,

I think I have some of that stuff that I never got around to using. If I find it you can have it mate. ;)
