George,

The blank is red, black, and gold. I believe you're seeing the gold. :)

Brian, my friend, thank you I truly appreciate your kind words.

George, it looks like Tim answered you before I could. Tim is correct. What you are seeing are just the colors from the blank. There is no brass tube showing. As I mentioned, I usually paint my tubes or blanks, but when I don't, I hold them up to a bright flood light next to my workbench to make sure, as I did in this case.

Scott, thank you!

Beautiful workmanship. Also, good to know that the blank is opaque. I prefer opaque blanks because I don't have to risk not painting the barrel and tube - less work.
Thanks for sharing.

I don't read about this much but sure wonder why more people don't paint the tube and cast clear over the painted tube.

Well done, beautiful work.

There are a few folks here that do just that, and with some amazing techniques. I'm pretty much a danger to myself with a paintbrush so I had to get creative in other ways lol
