So the model 75 wouldn't take the blue wonder? Odd.

I was thinking that for a regular carry gun rebluing, or touching up the slide, etc. with something like this might not be a bad itea. A yearly blue/black job would probably keep you in a nice looking slide and it would be pretty cheap. That is provided it wears like hot blue and not cold blue.

No it wouldn't course nothing else we tried on it would touch it up either just one spot about 5"s long and looks like steel in the white .. doesn't rust but stands out won't take any blueing touch up we found... So just a Warning on older guns it might not work

OK, thanks. I'm thinking about getting some of the black a little later on.

I tried using it to touch up a spot on the barrel of a Remington Model 11.
After 5 attempts (trying to follow the instructions exactly) I finally got it to look good. Next day I wiped the gun down with an oily rag and the "blue" wiped right off. Haven't tried it on anything else since.

I thought the Blue Wonder cleaner worked quite well though.
