Picked this S&W Mod 10-7 up in a trade from a friend. It is mechanically tight, but someone has tried to cold blue it at some point.
I field stripped it last night and there is a bit of rust inside the yoke.
So I think it will get de-rusted today. Then I'll blast it with aluminum oxide and probably Cera Coat it. But I may just Gun Kote it, as I have plenty of Gun Kote, but would need to order the Cera Coat.
It locks up tight and has a pretty nice action, though it will be much nicer when I finish with it. I may just slap a "Tyler T Grip" onto it and leave the grips as they are. Jury is still out on that, though.
Just in case the other pic is not showing I'll repost it.
