Anyone on here know how the metal parts of the Lanchester submachine gun were finished? Were they painted? Blued or parkerized?

Apart from the brass bits? Blueing wa sthe common finish. I use a stuff called Stovax Graphite Black Grate polish on the black parts of de-acs. You can get Cold Blueing , but never seems to work properly.

I have always used cold bluing on all my de-acts with excellent results. However, you need to prepare the metal surfaces very carefully and, of course, be very careful to de-grease properly. I've tried a number of cold bluing liquids available in the UK and they all seem to work reasonably well.
