Thanks for the heads up. Will do.

+1 on waiting 2 weeks. A suggestion would be to do a piece other than the firearm (and for the fun, add a run). Use that piece for "finger touches" to see when it is cured. When you feel it is good enough, try 800 wet/dry sandpaper and work to get the "fun run" out. I would rather screw up a test piece than the firearm.
Good luck.

The Huber Concepts trigger arrived yesterday. I want to get one more coat of Aluma Hyde II on the barrel and receiver before I install it.

I'm thinking of slimming the forearm a bit on the stock and painting it with the Aluma Hyde as well. However, I like the wood grain because it's pretty nicely figured, so I'm uncertain what I'll do. Maybe I'll just re stain it and give it some more Tru-Oil.

Don't forget about using 55-gallon drum BBQ grills

Everyone needs two 55-gallon drums, one to make a Grill/Gunkote cooker, and one to make a Sandblaster Chamber.
