Default Correct CMP blue for 1910 03

Which of these is the correct blue service for a circa 1910 1903?

CS402 Rifle metal refinish-Matte Blue all metal parts. This service includes the disassembly of the rifle, surface preparation and the bluing of the metal parts. The metal finish will be a dark blue/black and have a matte or no gloss appearance (Removal of pitting is not included). Rifle will be reassembled and function fired.


CS403 Rifle metal refinish-Polish blue all metal parts. This service includes the disassembly of the rifle, surface preparation and the bluing of the metal parts. The metal finish will be a dark blue and the outward surfaces of most parts will have a polished blue appearance where possible (Removal of pitting is not included). Rifle will be reassembled and function fired.

Technically neither. The CMP matte blue is just typical hot bluing that the surface was prepared by bead blasting.
Rust blueing is the correct finish.

I don't know anyone who does that professionally. Do a search on here. A while back someone posted pictures of a krag the CMP did in matte. You may like it
