Here's the options offered by Cimarron. Check out the bottom one. Some hate the look, and some love it.

Cimarron guns are Uberti's. It's all I used. They were made so close to the original guns you could interchange the parts.

I've got a .44 with a short barrel like that '62 in the catalogue.

Will the vinegar take the blueing off Pete ?

That gun looks like it's been dug up .

It will take it off easily, and etch the metal if you leave it on too long. It's strong stuff.

That will work nice on a new rifle with steel furniture as well , we normally leave the furniture in the white to acquire a patina but this will really speed things up.

well i finished polishing the frame yesterday, i blacked it out, washed in cold water and it looks great. Just have the trigger guard left to do.
Blacking the frame sounds like a good idea, since the brass will only tarnish in a very short time.  How did you black it out Question  Any pics Question
