Classic Rust Bluing - or?

Recommended Posts

So - I came across an old 1949 Colt .38 Super a while ago.

I also need a project as I am getting bored...  :)

The slide of the pistol is classic colt deep rich blue

The frame from years of use - sweat etc.- the blue is all gone for the most part.

The slide had after market target sights and I replaced them with fixed sights etc.

I think the collectible nature is gone from it - but is a solid shooter and accurate.

So, project gun rust blue or send it off to a proper bluing team?

,or, use the frame/slide as a donor and treat myself to a 'custom' treatment on it - say like sending it in to Wilson?


Thoughts, suggestions?
