NOW that makes total sense...

And the gunsmith then went ahead and stripped the Bulldog to match.

Bending the bolt handle will definitely mess with the bluing. Here's a video of the process on a different style of rifle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4n5F03wUSs

It is simple, but again easy to mess up. If you're not hot enough you could end up cracking the handle and end up having to weld it back together and grind it back to shape.


OK, this is my theory behind why the screen used Steyr Receiver in the film is stripped. I read eltree's "Real Shooter" thread and he was saying how he and his machinist buddy went through 2 bits per receiver when they milled them. So, I was telling my gunsmith about how machining the receiver goes through bits and he informed me that "as long as the receiver won't need to fire again, if you heat it up first it makes the gun steel much more easier to machine than if you do not, but it will remove the bluing" That made me think that is what the gunsmith did to the original receiver and that's why the bluing is stripped. It could be a million other reasons, but that's just my theory.

The $64,000 question (1 Million in today's prices...) is how hot do you need to soften them...

Well Rich, that is the question and a very good one at that! I will let you know the answer the next time I see him to ask. Maybe it's more an art rather than a science? I doubt any kiln would get anywhere near hot enough to really damage the structural integrity of a Steyr Receiver, but who knows?
