Hey y'all, thanks for all the great info feel free to keep the thread alive if you wish, I have been able to get some great information. I was going to just message the persons who I would like to get a little more detail from on their techniques if that is alright.
Trauter, I know that it probably won't be worth how much time, effort and money I put into the rifle but I will be proud to call it mine and proud of my efforts. This is more about the first experience of refinishing a rifle so that in the future if I wish to try it on other rifles, ones say that perhaps would gain value from a refinishing/reblueing, I will have the confidence in my self to do so. Being only 16 and this my first refinish I am glad that I have a cheap gun to mess up if I do it badly or perhaps by some twist of fate make it look a little better, I am willing to take that chance on this gun. Thank you for you concerns though and I appriciate your posting them.
Canebrake, uh oh. You have given me a fever. hahaha I really like how your project turned out and can't wait till I have a chance to do something like that. It will be a while but I am excited. Thanks for the input.........hmmmmm....I wonder how that would look on a Mosin..........
Thanks again every one you are such a wonderful resource for all Newbie shooters that find their way onto this website. I hope that someday I will be able to help out other newbies as well some day. If you as me the art of shooting seems to becoming a lost art. However that could be just my location and surroundings. Either way, keep it alive. Thanks all.
The truth will set you free, but first it's going to piss you off.
