Finish on rear sights

Posted by Mike Anderson on Tuesday, 6 February 2018, at 4:57 p.m.

I have a 1879 rear sight I want to put on a H&R Officers model. It could stand refinishing, and I would like to know what the original finish was - nitre blue, rust blue or oil quenched case hardening? Any expert opinions / suggestions on refinishing will be greatly appreciated.
