Has anyone used Brownell's Oxpho-blue? I read in the Brownell's Catalog that it is the most weather resistant and durable blueing. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with it and if so, how good did it look and how rust inhibiting is it?

Brownells oxpho-blue is the best cold blue on the market in my opinion. But it is not really suited for much more than spot touch up etc. It does not hold up that well in my opinion, but I do not know any cold blues that do. I use it after filing or fitting a part if blue has been removed. It holds me over until I can blue part or pistol. As for rust prevention it works fairly well

Hi juvycop, if you notice everything Brownells advertises seems to be the greatest, kind of like the old Herterz catalog, I had a bottle of cream for about 6 years and just thrown it out. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a 5. I just bought some Birchwood Casey Perma blue paste and it blued a Bomar OK, I'd give it a 8. Don't expect any miracle cold blues.
