I have not had any luck blueing stainless steel. Gun blueing won't work on stainless steel. But I have used etching liquid to grey out the blade. I have done ats 43 and 440 c with good results. I would use a scrap pice of steel first (to expirment on) . I hope this helps you mate.

Check with Brownells Gunsmith Supply. They use to carry blueing for stainless steel.
