    Hello,

    I was lucky enough to be the recipient of a fine gift, a Traditions Frontier rifle kit to finish and assemble while I have some leave time. My question for you all is I have seen some beautiful barrels on flintlocks but I have no idea on how to achieve such a finish. My barrel is in the white. I have done a little research and read about wrapping the barrel in cord, treating with vinegar or bleach to get a nice coloring, then oil. Do any of you have experience with this or any other technique? I would love to hear a detailed explanation of the process you used, how it worked for you. Post pics of the steps and your finished project if you have them. For that matter I would love to see some pics of old school muzzle loaders you all might have purchased or had handed down.

    Please help.

    I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
