I've used enough of it over the years to fill a small swimming pool. Follow the directions and you'll get a nice blue from Oxpho-Blue.

Either the 4 oz bottle of liquid or the 4 oz bottle of the creme formula will do your entire rifle several times.

The creme is a bit easier for a beginner to use, it doesn't run or drip like the liquid.

If you don't have any, you will also want some latex or nitrile gloves (Wal Mart auto department is the cheapest) AND some white cotton gloves.
The latex or nitrile are worn next to your skin to protect you, the cotton over them to protect the gun from your fingerprint oils and any surface contaminants the latex or nitrile might pick up.

Brownell's has the white cotton "polishing" gloves although you might find them cheaper elsewhere, they are $14.99 a pair.

The ones from Brownells are pretty heavy duty and made for polishing metals, Wal Mart sells a box of 12 pairs of lightweight, disposable cotton gloves for $29.

Default Done!

Well it's done! Finally. After a whole lot of cleaning and scrubbing. It was pretty easy to do the actual bluing. Wipe on, let it sit. Wipe off. Repeat as necessary.
Here are the "after" pics. Thanks everyone for the help and advise.
Marc

Nice work.

Oxpho Blue is one of the easiest of the cold blues to use, and produces some of the best results.

As with all finishes, the results depend heavily on the preparation, and you obviously did that well.
