Can a K-80 receiver be blued?
This gun is a light weight.

Thanks Buster

I doubt the alloy would take bluing. There may be other things that could be used to accomplish the same end.

They can be blued but the nickel needs to be removed. You need to have someone that knows what they are doing do this. If the receiver is left in the chemical bath too long it will etch the metal.

Lightweight receivers are aluminum. Aluminum won't take a bluing, but it can be anodized (it probably has a clear anodizing on it right now to protect the metal). Anodizing can be done in all sorts of neat colors, probably just about any in the color spectrum...

Give Krieghoff a call. I have a factory LW Super Scroll that has a very dark almost black finish. I understand they are able to refinish these guns.

No such thing as black anodizing. I would cerakote it. It's a ceramic based paint that is airbrushed on (very thin) and baked in an oven. It's the toughest finish that you could use.

Thanks for all the information.It is out being cerakoted as we speak.Hope to have it back in a week or two.

I talked to Kreighoff and they said no,about the blued type finish.It may of been just who I talked to.

Shoot well,shoot often,be safe,have fun
