Getting ready to brown my smooth bore's barrel. I bought a bottle of Laurel Mountain Forge cold brown solution. Last build I went with BC plum brown. But since this new gun has two soldered barrel tennons, instead of the staked variety, I cannot heat the metal for fear of the tennons coming loose. The front sight is also soldered in place. I had to go with the cold brown. I can't find anywhere that mentions whether this stuff will hurt the solder or not. I'm thinking no, but am not sure. Anyone brown a barrel with soldered areas, and what were your results. Thanks in advance.

I've never done it....


But my turkey Fowler has a browned barrel and I know the fro t sight is soldered on.. atleast it looks to me like it was...


Maybe call Laurel mountain to make sure of you don't get a solid answer here...

I've never soldered much....do you need clean metal like welding? Or could you get a fine solder job after its browned??

I have no idea...

You're safe. Even with cold bluing, you are submerging the barrel into water that was just a boiling temps, and that isnt even hot enough to hurt your soldered gun
