I tried to copy your work in.re. cleaning and blueing but ended up with a bollixed Luger in bits. I am now going to spray paint it. What's the best colour for the gunmetal look? Tamiya whatever or Dulux emulsion?? Every paint I see calling itself gunmetal looks nothing like the previous 10 I looked at. HELP!!!!

The problem is that I can't find it anywhere as a spray can. If I try to hand paint it I will end up with an abomination!!
