bobski,

I’ve seen D Vicnair’s work, he’s one a true craftsman and one of top restoration guys around, sending a model 50 to Dewy Vicnair might be a bit of overkill.
Sine your model 50 has been refinished once already, and unless it was engraved by one of the factory engravers, I recommend finding someone local to reblue your shotgun. The model 50s were more than likely originally blued with Dulite’s bluing salts, find a gunsmith in your area using dulite salts, and you’ll get pretty close.

Best ting to do is to talk to him about it, if he's been bluing a while, he will have his tricks...we all do.

I do not have a clue. If I were to make a guess; keep in mind this is strictly, and only a guess, I would say SAE 4140.

My guess- AISI 4140 also- medium carbon will accept heat treatment, nickle, chrome and moly for machine-ability, tensile and modulus of elasticity factors as well-
