I bought an old Custom FN rifle with a Mauser action earlier this week. I have never seen bluing like this gun has. It's deep black. I'm thinking it's black chrome. Anyone know of any 196-'s guns with black chrome?

I like that black vs blued...
But that burled fish-eyed stock is incredible.....

Did you ever confirm if this is indeed chambered for .30 Gibbs?
