What is the process for the light, brilliant blue that I have seen on Colt Peacemaker guns? They are usually the screws and assorted parts and they look nothing like the traditional blue that I see in my own blued firearms. Is it expensive or delicate? Last time I was at the gun show I saw a couple of nice Colt .45s with this treatment.

Currently blued guns look more black to me. Have the manufacturers changes processes over the years? Thanks..........Mike

Thanks Pete for the explaination of the various bluing. Sorry for the misleading title of fireblue. I read that phrase here on the site and thought to myself "thats it, that Colt blue I've seen". I had never heard that term before so I just assumed and went with my question.

So, if fireblue isn't the bright blue that I have seen on Colts what is fireblue?....Mike
