Has anyone used Novum Solutions Blue Wonder Gun Blue?
I saw this product(Novum Solutions Blue Wonder Gun Blue) listed at MidwayUsa, and am wondering if any of you have used it. Pros/cons? The writeup I saw at Midway praised the product well. I despise the look of cold blues, but don't have the budget or time to send off some of my older guns to be professionally hot blued. I'm hoping some of you have used this product, and can tell me how it rates compared to both cold bluing and hot blue jobs. Thanks.

Novum is fantastic
I used this stuff to touch up a little holster wear on the muzzle of a few guns and it works GREAT!! You'll need to buy their gun cleaning solution as well as the bluing / developer formulas. It's so darn easy, I'm recommending to it everyone. Nope, I don't work for Novum Solutions.

I have bought the kit and some cleaner but haven't had the chance to use it yet. I saw a demo at a gun shop on an old shotgun barrel. It looked great but it was more brown than blue.

It is really good for touching up holster wear on a couple ofmy revolvers.I used it to completely reblue a old P-38 given to me that had all the original blueing rusted off.Except for the pits in the areas that were really bad with rust it came out well.It has been over a year and the finish is still as dark as when I originaly did it.
To get a really good even finish is not to handle the parts after you use the cleaner and you need a really good hairdryer to heat up the parts.Others use flames to heat the metal up but I was not too comfortable to do it.
The cleaner is good in it's own right.CW

to tell the truth, i dont know. i tried it on a spare mauser trigger guard i had that had rem oil previously applied to it. i sanded it down to bare fresh steel , and still could not get the blue wonder to adhere properly. its probably been about a year since i did it, and i can still rub it off with my fingers. if you are in doubt contact dk novum and ask for their advice.

Blue Wonder is good stuff
I just used Blue Wonder over the weekend to blue a 1911 grip safety.
I followed the directions and it turned out perfectly. The bluing is a deep black tha has no streaks or uneven spots.
Over the years I've used all the usual bluing solutions for touch-ups and this stuff is better than any other cold bluing.
Two thumbs up from my little corner of the world.
