400 grit finish with the safety and floor place release to add a little contrast and a new stock when I can find one for it.
I brought the 740 home finally, got a B+ on it. I would have had an A on the project but I made the mistake of thinking cleaning the barrel last week till it was squeaky clean was enough, it wasnt. I had some leach out over the past week and when the instructor ran a patch down it since it waasnt 'clean' he deducted it to a B+. Kind of makes me a bit irritated too
next time I"m gonna scrub the &%$k out of it 10 minutes before I turn it in.
Supposedly that's a common mistake for students in the Basics section of the gunsmithing school, I thought I had avoided it but apparently not.
Anywho, gonna just let the hole ride until it does present a problem, the owner isnt to worried about it and I told him I'd fix it if he really wanted me to when it starts to make problems.
