    I'm going to try this on the slide of my old Sig P228, love the gun but it's showing it's age...

    I did that with a carbon steel slide P226 albeit using the similar Birchwood Casey product. It evened out the finish nicely.

    I've noticed that different steels react differently to the cold bluing products. You'll see different shades of blues and blacks, and some steels will become mottled or you'll see patterns. My guess with those is that they are cheap and not as homogeneous as they should be. I had a lot of fun rubbing it on various tools.
