    I have a Stevens 22/410 I’m restoring; the case is colored using Stevens’s cyanide process I think. Can I blue it myself and if so what do I do. The case is very worn.

    Case Coloring

    I'd like to suggest you call a commercial case color guy: Ed Szfranski (608) 221 3008. He has no email I know of. I have a bluing business and use Ed for all my case coloring work. If you prepare the receiver to about 400 grit and have it ready to go, you'll find Ed's work is beautiful and reasonably priced. You could also have the receiver hot blued with Du-Lite 3-0 salts which will stay black and not turn reddish.
