Nice work, as always.
My Father had been wanting a classic Ruger .22 pistol, we picked up this Mark II for a song, it needed a rebluing, so I cleaned it up for him
The before and after pics
and blog posts showing what we did
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 for sharing. I always enjoy seeing your fine work.
Wow! Looks NIB!
no trigger job, I can always go back and do that if it needs it.
Your bluing looks great, looks black.
What process do you use?
The Hot Salts (aka Caustic Salts) method.
Looks really good.
another one, this one an old Remington 512 Sportmaster

I took this pile of parts and made it into a Remington 870 Police Shotgun, old school style (1970's vintage), best part is I have less than $60 invested
and the blog posts with the details
Excellent job and at a great price too.
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
WOW! Now I can never show off my work again.... OK, just kidding! Those are awesome looking!!! Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed restoring my old Ruger .22 lr tube fed rifles a few years back but it is tedious work but the results in the end more than pay for themselves!! BRAVO!!!
Like the old Savage guns. They are still building them near me in Westfield,MA. Good company. Good guns
Another one saved....this one a New Haven 250C (Mossberg economy brand)
Great job on that rifle! You do good work.
A Smith & Wesson model 19 that the bastards at Century Arms sullied with graffiti
