Very nice did you do a trigger job? Or had it already been done. The trigger was the first thing I had replaced on my Mark III.

Thanks!


Here is a Savage 110 that I refinished recently, it wasn't heavily pitted, just small rust spots and some worn bluing from field use.
I polished the barrel to a gloss shine, then gave the bolt handle and receiver a matte finish. I think it turned out pretty good

What kind of bluing process are you doing?

The hot/caustic salts method. It is a bath of Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) and Sodium Nitrate, heated to 290 +/- degrees
