Benelli M1 barrel finish?

As I recall, stock finish was plain ol' matte blue with possibly a hint of gray. Personally, I would run it uner a wire-wheel, or a 320-400 grit buffer pad. Glass bead, or 600-800 AlOx, blast for a more matte look. I like Mark Lee's "stove top" bluing(Midway) for a deep solid blue/black.


You could try adding a few drops of phosphate stripper (Home Depot) if you wanted to get a bit of gray. I personally have not done this, but there are several home-park recipes available on ar15.com.
