Here is another gun I restored, the owner wanted it reblued and made pretty again, not back to original, but looking good without the rust.


The shotgun had been in the family for three generations and the current owners brother put a recoil pad on it in bubba fashion, so I fixed that, polished and reblued the steel, nitre blued the pins and charging handle and refinished the stock to match.


Before and after pictures

Tincan, you really need to show us a screw-up, lest you become a "Legend in your own time".

That was a good ole shotgun in it's day. I shot a lot of pheasant with one of those. You did a great job restoring it and you should be putting a grin on their faces for sure. GOOD JOB!
