Well the barrel is blued. I ordered Brownells Oxpho blue cream and MY GOD that stuff is good. Never will I blue any other way.

The liquid is good for doing small stuff like screwes and sling swivels ect.... But for actions and barrels the cream or paste is the best. I will take pics later today and post them up.

OK took a few steps and an entire can of lacquer backwards. I was doing some sanding trying to get rid of the high and low spots and rubbed threw the finish in 2 spots. I tried to repair the spots and blend them but they stuck out like a sore thumb to me. So I am stripping the stock back to bear wood and will work on maybe a video of the finishing process I use on it.

I dunno know what I did different this time BUT OMG here is the results so far. 1 coat of Special walnut stain rubbed in till my are fell asleep then rubbed some more. Then I put on 6 coats of sanding sealer with a 600grit wet sand in between each coat. Then one coat of semi gloss lacquer later here she be.







It is hard to see but in this picture there is more figure showing now than before about 1/3 of the way down from the top.

The wood looks good, where's the steel?

Steel is on the bench not looking so hot. I need to work more on it. I am to the point where I may just dent the barrel and action off to have it hot blued.
