Birchwood Casey makes a bluing pen, also liquid cold blue that's worked for years for me. Be sure to warm up the metal in the oven at 200* to make the chemical adhere properly.

Blueing pens?

Just in case. Is it actually bluing? People through that word around if anything is black, blue, etc.

- If it is blue, what he said. ^
- If itís black, Casey makes that too.
- If it is black and aluminum, there is Aluminum Black, also Casey, only for Aluminum. It is not ink or paint. Its a chemical reaction to aluminum that turns it black.
- If itís Royal Blue, you are sol. Send it out.
- If itís cheapo, use Black Sharpie.
- If itís different color, send it our for Cerakote.

Ok, I got carried away. Sorry!
