I have read that Manganese phosphate can be removed with citric acid without damaging the steel..  Anyone know any other way?

Greetings My Good TL

I always used a brass-wire wheel and a very light hand....

industrial folks use chromic acid ( aaaah!!!! )

the chemists say to use phosphoric acid ( like in coke) ...
For What It Is Worth,  I use the cheapest Cola I can find to gently etch damascus blades to bring out the pattern.

the hobbyists say vinegar, citric acid, soda pop, or naval jelly.
Or abrade it off.

They all say the finish ends up looking pitted or etched or sandblasted

This outfit claims they have a miracle drug cure !

https://iosso.com/clean/products/quickstrip/

"IOSSO QUICKSTRIP is a revolutionary product designed to remove Parkerizing and blueing within minutes without etching. Just immerse parts into Quickstrip solution and let soak for several minutes. Watch closely until completely stripped, then remove, and rinse thoroughly with water. Eliminates the need for bead blasting. Solution is re-useable. Quickstrip does not contain a rust inhibitor. Easy to use ? little odor! Environmentally friendly. "

Jeeeze! It sounds like one of my Snake Oil Speeches!

Wow, Midway has it:

but the only review says "it did nothing"

hope this helps

Here's mine...

Purchased January 2020 from Cimarron. It was sent out to Mike Braggett (45 Dragoon) for a complete action tuning, leaf spring to coil custom conversion and Arbor correction. Coil Hand Spring install along with an array of Mike's other goodies!

Russ, does that OT have no case colors or is it just the angle of the light in the photo?   

I have added a little color to some of my older conversions that didn't have much color, by using both Brownell's Dicrophan, and Birchwood Casey Super-Blue cold blue.

Sorry to get back so late.

Yes, mine had plenty of color and one day, I was cleaning the gate with a bronze brush and discovered that the color brushes off very easily.  Because of that, I ended brushing off the whole thing. I kind of like it better.

Picked these 45s up and wound up running the Opentop at a match today before I even had taken it to the range. Ran perfectly and I love the Army grip.

Beautiful revolver. I just watched your video on that one  yesterday.
