good luck man hope it comes out the way you want it to.
I had thought about using the new stuff that you can spray on the gunstock and then place it in a large pan of water and it wraps the gunstock in camo, but i wanted the natural look. I will paint the barrel with duarcoat, or i might just hotblue the thing still not sure.

I actually changed my mind when i started to finish the gun. I put a little of teh stain on a small part of the forearm and it turned out dull and really not what i wanted so i sanded it again and turned to a nice walnut colored stain. It actually came out really good. For me atleast i like the way ot came out. Then i used Birchwood casey blue and it came out really nice. looks good for a cold blue i haven't used it before so it was different and came out really nice. Maynard

After i finished the clean up and stain i went back with gunoil and a ooo steel wool and 0000 steel wool to remove the surface rust on the receiver.

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.
