    Hi. Quick look for you of my latest find. T DAINTITH of Warrington. Little known gunmaker of fine guns. This one around 1890 we think. I am reliably told it's a pigeon gun with it's wide flat rib. Just had it rejointed. Seems to be in reasonable nick for such an old gun. Bores to be honest could be a tad better. It's proofed black powder only but that's what I want it for. I have cleaned up the outside of the barrels and intend to brown them. Hi. Quick look for you of my latest find.

    I think all the cold blue solutions are not too permanent. The stuff I am using is for slow rust blue. The most durable black there is.

    Could this really be sciatica? (Juncker)

    No. Twas E J Blackley and son. Tried to get our daughter in Canada to bring over some Pilkintons but she looked at the ingredients and declined. I will have a look for the Phillips. EDIT. Just had a look at Phillips and can only see COLD blue solution. Mine is a traditional slow rust blue. Two totally different procedures.

    Think I am well in. Decided to move on my 1920s best Belgian Dumoulin 12g to make room for a new hammergun! Problem was that although the gun is in excellent condition and tight as a drum the barrels were "a bit scruffy" on the outside. So like a fool decided to to do a slow rust blacking job on them! I now know why it's so expensive to have done and also why it's called "slow". Nevertheless I am satisfied with the finish. Looks as if the gun was custom made for a Mr Kawak which perhaps explains the very plain sideplates.

    I think any decent leather bag is going to cost a lot. Also be wary if going for leather. Because of some strange marketing loophole. Folk are able to sell as "leather" when they are not cowhide. Lots of none leather ones about at very reasonable prices.

    Most bizzare job you've had

    As kids we used to get a week off school for mangle chopping or tata picking. Backbreaking work even for the young.

    BLACK POWDER

    Its certainly worth it for own use or trusted friends. I can produce a decent load for clays and a bit of a play for around £12/14 a box as to around the £28 retail. You are on dangerous ground producing for any gun you don't trust.
