Default Repair job gone bad!

Has anyone ever wanted to just smack someone in the back of the head, becuase they used superglue to reglue the blade of sight to the front of a H&R to the barrel, and why do they always spray paint the wood black???
I know that some of the H&R's came in black that were made with the blug barrels but why is it always srpay paint.

I know how you feel. I had to strip the stock on a Marlin 25m after a little Hoppes got on it. Someone did a really good job but spray paint just does not hold up. Finished it with Tung Oil and floated the barrel while I was at it. I need to get it to the range.

I stripped the paint of the wood stock. then i used a 120 sand paper then went to 220, 320 and finally went to a 400 to finish. The barrel is going to be duracoated for a black finish. and the wood is going to have a light mahogany coat with linseed oil added until i get the light red finish. I have done this on small tables so lets see how it looks on a gun.

that right there is a good clean slate, me personally I like three tone tiger stripe camo, use to paint all my airsoft guns that way... just haven't gotten around to doing it with a real gun.

good luck man hope it comes out the way you want it to.

Default Black painted H&R like that from factory

back in late 1990's I found the local varity store had a sale going on I bought a new Chinese SKS and a H&R 12ga single shot shotgun, both were display models and had scratched stocks, I bought the shotgun for $69 and the SKS $110 scratched varnish never botherd me any, I sanded off the ugly yella varnish on the SKS and Toung Oil'd it, The H&R I touched up the scratched stock paint with a Q-tip and some aerosol Krylon paint spritzed in the cap and dabbed on the stock
