Thanks I didn't exactly know how to do it but I think it looks good and that's all that matters

So what should I do with the receiver, paint it?duracoat?

But I want it to mostly match the barrel and that's what im concerned about

If that's not to many but this one stood out to me and I wanted it to be to its full potential.
I just want it to shoot minute of squirrel and look good doing it

And on another note,it doesn't have swivel studs. How would you go about drilling a hole for them without cracking the stock?
i added swivel studs to mine after the pictures were taken. how i did mine, i drilled a hole the same diameter as the stud. then used a step drill to countersink the hole from the receiver side until it was just a hair smaller than the knurled nut that it threads into. now you need another nut to fit the stud also. thread the stud into the nut into the stocks, then screw it down until it is flush with the bottom of the inside of the stock. you will notice that there is threads above the nut. now unthread the stud, noting how much threads protruded from the nut, then take the other nut that fit the stud and screw it all the way on. then cut of the amount of threads not needed that were above the nut. after cutting it down to size, thread the nut off and this will clean up the threads where you cut it, making it easier to thread it back into the one you just installed in the stock. the rear one is easier as all you have to do is drill a straight hole slightly smaller because it has wood screw type threads. hope this helps.

Axxe thank you for all the help.

Would you consider this gunsmithing...? At the minimal level of course but it is gunsmithing, right?

maybe, i call it tinkering! i'm not a gunsmith by any means, but i do enjoy working on guns and can do some things as long as i get info from people who know more than me. there are some pretty smart people on here who know quite a bit about firearms. i have picked up lots of useful information and advise. when i post information on here, i post how i did something or what i used to do something with. not to say my way is the only way, just how i did it. if someone has a better or easier or even safer way, i'm more than willing to learn from them. if i post the wrong or unsafe information or the what i did was wrong, i hope someone will jump in and correct my mistakes. i do try to help those who know less than i do and try to learn from those who know more than me.

I just like the satisfaction of a beautiful gun you redo yourself and looking at the before and after pictures

IMO it's more like rebuilding. There are a couple of nice looking

finishes in this thread, to say the least. Great work, guys.

It's called a Damaskeening Tool. It's used for decorative polishing of metal with circular polishing swirls. A process also called spot polishing, engine turning or jeweling. I got mine at Midway MidwayUSA - Menck Bolt Jeweling Tool 1/4"

Id want a little smaller in diameter than 1/4 because it looks more detailed to me
