So watching Adam Savage's video where he compares his ultimate build against the real deal, he talks about the stripping away the existing bluing with white vinegar.

Yep, I knew about this process . . . I "think." I believe you drop the parts in white vinegar for an hour and you're good to go.

He says the process left the perfect patina, and I agree.

But . . . does anyone know if he re did bluing, or clear coated, or anything else after? Do you need to do that if you don't want rusting?

I would suggest always keeping all gun metal parts (especially the parts that have been stripped) coated with a thin layer of gun oil, so that they won’t get all rusted up down the road.
