So, I was poking around the interwebs the other day and found some pictures of a Zastava M92 AK pistol that the owner had blued the bolt on. Looked pretty sweet! I was thinking I might want to do that on mine.

Would cold bluing be acceptable or should I opt for hot bluing?

If cold bluing is good to go, any suggestions on the product(s) I should use?

If hot bluing, any suggestions on where to take it? I don't have a tank or the knowledge for that operation...

Thanks in advance.

if micro slick colors the bolt to your liking, it would be a win-win. Lubricity, ease of cleaning...color(?)

Tomorrow I will take a picture of the AR bolt BIGGDAD did for me so you can see how it turns out.

is that the original thread protector on that thing?! When are you going to get a Nightbrake or other brake/flash suppressor for it?

(it only takes a few swipes with a triangle file to break the tack weld that holds it on)

If you get sticker shock from the cost of microslick or decide to blue it, I can hot blue it for $20

Here is one of my 10/22 bolts that I blued

Haha, I had one that I did some work to, including the manticore night brake, but ended up getting rid of it. Kicked myself over and over, and when I seen one come available a few months back, I had to have it. The one in the pic is from the interwebs, not mine.

I'm definitely going to swap out the thread protector that is on mine. :-)

Here is the bolt from my AR it is more of a greyish, I am not sure if they can custom color it or not. I think my nephew only charges 25 or 30 to do it but we are up here in the great white north you hoser ehh
