I messed up and tried to quote Oneball and it didn't come out right.

That's a friggin' excellent idea! My GPR is in need of a new blue job. Maybe I should go with the Browning instead? That would really make her look good. I like your saying: Can you skin Griz?
My wife got me that movie for my birthday.

LMF chemical browing is excellent stuff to use,just remember to use as little as possiable just to dampen the metal and set aside,used dungarees pants will be excellent to card the scaling brown rust off the barrel and parts.I found out apply a couple of coats first before scaling.

Laurel Mountain Forge browning solution is great stuff. Easy to use, works well, and gives a beautiful brown.

I always used Birchwood/Casey's "Plum Brown". It works good. Degrease the barrel ,slightly heat the barrel or parts up. Then simply take a clean rag w/ the Plum Brown and wipe it on the heated parts.
