    And another before/after. I got this S&W Triple Lock in 1982 for $135 at a gun show. At the time I was practicing engraving on anything handy. The grips I had made in Africa working there in '51, did the eagle with a kind of Dremel tool. Nickle plated it with Texas Plater Supply kit.

    This was an old I J that sat in a cow pasture for almost a year after putting
    down a cow.

    Well changed my mind not going for a resto just a little perfume on a pig should be fine :D.

    I ve got the stocks looking much nicer than they were, would like to get the rust off especially that big chunk on the receiver :( , any ideas that won't remove the bluing too?
