The muzzle and some of the breach face was easy to clean up using 400 grit sandpaper. The rest of this is pretty fussy work for sand paper.

I'm thinking of Naval Jelly, but I'm worried about masking. Any suggestions?


I use naval jelly to clean the lug. I mask the areas around it with duck tape and then use the naval jelly. After the blue is removed, I finish up by very lightly polishing the area with 0000 stell wool. The results look nice but not new. This is what the lug should look like.
