Ok, I got the "itis"!!! first one in a 1981 Glenfield 60 the other is a 60's Westernfield lever 22. Both had the stocks redone and finished with Tung Oil, Barrels stripped and reblued and the aluminum was Duracoated. Internals were polished.

Did you simply use cold blue to re-blue the barrels? The 12 gauge I have coming in is going to need to have the barrel stripped and re-blued. I was figuring on cleaning it nicely with 0000 steel wool then doing a cold blue to the barrel.

Nice job on the rifles!

But a clean work bench like yours is... well... not normal.

Thanks all.... WHSmithIV -I use Oxpho cream on the barrels and regular Oxpho on the small parts, sometime I use Arts Belguin especially when I am browning/bronzing a barrel. I don't use it cold until the last application. I heat the barrel warm to touch with heat gun then apply. The trick is prep... I stip and sand the barrel on my lathe, some barrels I polish, then overnight in warm degreaser to a rinse bath then heat and blue. I have my method, others have thiers. I hope this works for you.

GunHugger - A clean work bench is the sign of a sick mind..... I have been told I am a little AR/OCD.... yeah yeah.... what you don't see is the pile of stuff on the bench behind me... and neither do I when I am taking pics. (actually my shop is spotless....)

PMK - I hope it never ends thats why I am pursuing doing this as a business. I love giving old shooters a new lease on life. Some of the guns I have posted were old rusted, pitted, scratched, nasty old guns. I am looking for more of them to work on. Thanks for the comps...

I have a Glenfield in the safe but it sure doesn't look like that one. I was thinking about getting rid of it but now have second thoughts.

So the question is: how does it shoot?

dons2346, it shoots just fine. After I do a build, of disassemble/reassemble, I always run at least 20 to 30 off in my shop. Not one ftf, fte, or ftl. Perfect.
