    If thats the case it appears to be more of a rust bluing. I've seen the process before but was unsure of the difference in finish.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    That's not cold blue. A professional is a hot blue bath and it gives the deep luster like that. It could also be hand applied rust blue...that was the original application.

    rvan84 - Unfortunately your picture posting was possibly damaged by the recent system updates.

    I get an error message when I try to view your images. I suspect that might be true for everyone now.

    I have tried to upload the photos again but it doesn't seem to be letting me. Not sure if there are still issues.

    You'll need to re-save those pics as another name on your computer before re-using them.

    That is one attractive rifle! Wood and bluing really work well together. Reminds me of an older Smith revolver.

    The left magazine plate shows purple which indicates a high Nickle content or cool bluing salts... That polish would need to be a hand done with fine paper to be so clean and no stretched marks. Hard detailed work. I ask Butlersrangers again, is that Italianicon walnut you think? Maybe some passerby will know for sure?
