Default Old stevens 12ga I did a little work on.

So i bought this old pre-serial stevens model 77 on the cheap and decided to refinish it and make it a HD gun. I really like the way it turned out and just wanted to share some pics. This thing had never been cleaned so i stripped it all the way down cleaned everything, and cut about 5 inches off the barrel. (yes it is 18.5 so still legal.) Refinished the stock and painted the whole thing OD green.

Before:



After:

It only took me three days to do the finishing work, but 4 days if you count the break down then cleaning and preping the surfaces. Preping the surfaces (both wood and metal) is really important for getting a good finished product.
