There is something ahead of the scope mount, but I just thought it was a level or something similar. Cannot seem to figure out exactly what it is.

That is a Sharpie holding the gun up on a angle, it does look like "something" though, I agree...

If no one gets it I will post the answer tomorrow

No, actually that is how Napier Power Airgun Oil leaves bluing looking, it is my go to oil for cleaning and maintaining bluing...Does a really nice job, you should see my QB after a coat of that stuff, makes the gun look better than new

After seeing pictures of similar guns, I notice that you don't have the warning stamped to the right of "American Classic". That mod would cover safety and aesthetic.

We have a winner!!!

I removed the safety roll stamp before re-bluing the tube, took a little elbow grease, but I hate looking at the safety warning... good eye 8)

It would have taken forever with 600 to start, too much material to remove...

I started with 320 to remove the old bluing, Then extra-coarse 50grit Emery cloth on the roll stamp only, then a smooth cut file to straighten/level everything...Then I brought it down with 150grit Emery, 320grit silicon carbide, then 600grit silicon carbide....

Then I wiped it down with fine steel wool, and then used my Dremel to wire wheel the entire tube. Then it was washed with metal cleaner and the bluing process began; wipe on the bluing, let it dry for an hour, rinse in hot water, wipe dry with cloth, rub very lightly with fine steel wool to remove residue, wipe with cloth again....apply more bluing

After the bluing looked even and dark enough for my liking I coated it in Napier Power Airgun Oil and let it sit for about 4-5hour, I wiped it down and coated it again, and the pictures show what I was left with... :drinkers:


Phantoms don't have the roll stamp so you will just have to sand away the bluing and bit of paint that says "phantom"....and you can buy a "bluing kit" made by Outers sold at Canadian Tire for $15 IIRC

^ Excellent Joel, thanks for the info on this. And $ 15 for the Blueing Kit is worth it.

Something i will do at a later date, as the Phantom is pretty much new. Cheers.
