    Is the Armadillo just a surface coat for the outside of the gun,...

    ...or can it be used in the bore to protect that? If so, how would one apply it to the bore?

    It can be used both on the surface to protect from rust and down the bore. Down the bore, it actually inhibits fouling. In shotgun bores it improves accuracy as well. To apply down the bore, I roll up a piece of paper towel to the appropriate size, apply a good coating of Armadillo and push it through the bore with a rod. Allow that to sit for a few minutes then push a patch through to remove any excess. It will make the inside of the bore SHINE! and protect from rust, while inhibiting the build-up of lint on ccw guns.

    Unhappy Oh dear.

    Well, I tried the Blue Wonder re-blue on a S&W 36 square-but that I just had re-worked. The outside of the gun had a nice 1971-era deep factory blue with some scratches and rust freckles on it.

    I followed the Blue Wonder instructions to the letter. Wearing gloves the entire time, I cleaned with the gel, completely dried the gun, applied more gel, heated the gun with hair driers, removed the gel, applied coat after coat (about 8 - the instructions said at least 6 but not more than 16) of the blue, applied a coat of the activator, and then let it sit for 6 hours. I came back then and oiled the gun, as instructed.

    The gun is now seriously blued. Sort of a blue-black, about halfway between a 1990s S&W factory blue and a S&W factory anodizing.

    But it's MOTTLED! The surface is covered with an "oil slick" look that's really unattractive.

    Any thoughts, BP Novum, on how I might fix this?
