I picked up a few squirrels over the past month or so. This one was in very bad shape. 1972, rust, pits, you name it... [/IMG] First disassembled the whole thing to see just how bad it all is. [/IMG] The barrel looked like the feed tube. [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] The stock was not in too bad a shape, just alot of wear. [/IMG] Put the barrel on the lathe, sanded and turned it to get the rust and pitting gone. [/IMG] The barrel was an experiment, did some creative bluing and got it to turn Bronze/Brown [/IMG] [/IMG] Bead Blasted the receiver, trigger guard and front sight. [/IMG] Refinished the stock. [/IMG] [/IMG] [/IMG] Sorry no pics of bolt, it has been polished accurized and jeweled. The Trigger group has been cleaned and trigger pull down to 4 lbs. Thinking about opening up again and getting it down to 3lbs. Also waiting for Duracoat to arrive so I can finish the job. Either going glossy black, OD green or Dark Earth. Stay tooned!!!
