1. Let me make sure I completely understand "body putty". When I "fix" holes in car fenders, etc. I get body putty like "Bondo". Mix the liquid with the putty, spread it on and wait a few minutes. Usually it dries a "pinkish color". When sanded, dust goes everywhere. When you speak of body putty, is this the stuff you are talking about?
2. Let's assume you remove a *blued* barrel from an action for the expressed purpose of re-crowning the barrel. The finish on the barrel is good and does not need to be re-blued. Can you get the body putty off the barrel without causing damage to the blue finish?
