I think its called blueing, but I might be wrong. Im not a gun junky and dont know much about the topic. I have a remington 870 thats about 30 years old and the barrel has become shiny, I was told theres something I can do to get it back to its flat black color. any ideas? its camo taped right now and looks so awful lol

A less expensive, (but less professional looking) method is something I've done on several rifles and shotguns over the years...paint it. Get a can of flat black spray paint; the kind you can buy to paint a bar b que grill or car engine. It's heat resistant, and when it starts to wear off, a quick touch up is all it needs. Just make sure the exterior of the barrel is free of all oil or solvents before you spray it. Take the barrel off the shotgun, cover the sight with masking tape, then put a long piece of wire through the barrel and with a pair of pliers, turn the wire up on the ends so you can hang the barrel from a tree branch or clothes line. Cheap and effective.
