Default Referb of a eastern arms company 101.1

So my girl freinds dad brought out an old rusted hunk of metal the other day to show me. It used to be his grandfather's shot gun. It didn't have a barrel assymbly or a buttstock attached and covered in rust. Long story short I ended up with it to clean up for him. Now I quite literally have no gun tools here so..ya using lowes tools for this and the only power tool I have is a dermal thats a few years old.

After reading a few of DIY GUY's threads I decided to use navel jelly to clean it up as best I could. I didn't take alot of pictures of it afterwards but it was pitted fairly bad but only on a few areas of the reciver. After a little work with a file and some 80 grit paper I had gotten most of the pitting out. I only get a few hours a night to work on it so this will be a long project. I'll keep updating as I go. The worst pitting is on areas that you can't see when it's together. Also the hammer is extremely hard and my cheap file slides across it with no affect. Think I'm going to have to find a stone or two to try to hit the area that shows to polish it out.

I have never missed power tools and my tool chest back home more then I do now. Lol. But it's a good learning experience for me. I still have a huge amount of work to do. This isn't ment to be a show piece. Just cleaning something up so it'll shoot once I get the barrel assymbly and butt stock to be passed down to the kids.

Sorry for the long time between updates so I got a quick one for you.
The entire project is waiting on parts to come in. They should be arriving today so hope that works out.
Blued most of the internals. I'll try to get pics up after work today. The reciever is waiting to get fitted to the stock before final polish and and blueing.
Really good news is that there is a barrel assymbly somewhere and it is being searched for at the moment. So hoping it turns up. Thats about where I am in this project so stay tuned. Hope you all enjoy it when it's done.

Ok been a really long time since I'v even gotten back to the forum. But here's the up date that's been a long time comeing. I'm getting close to the finish line on this project. I attempted to cold blue the reciever with oxpho blue. It Did a pretty good job of blueing the metal but I couldn't get it to be even across the entire reciever. did really good job for smaller part though. I went with gun kote bake on finish and it looks pretty good. Don't know how well it will hold up over the long haul but if I need to I can always reapply it. I got a replacement original barrel and it's in great shape and I'v fitted it to the reciever. I really lucked out that it was a fairly tight fit. Don't know where I could have gotten it welded up around here if it had been lose. The remaining things are to prep the barrel for the gun kote. Strip the for end and refinish it. Then put it all back together.

04,

Very nice! Can not wait to see it when you have it all completed and assembled! Giving the Old Dog a new life is fantastic! Most deserve the time to put them back in operating condition! If only they could tell us the story during their existence! Nothing beats an old nostalgic weapon! I have my Grandfathers guns and they are my prized possessions! And will be passed down through the family in the future when I head to the happy hunting ground.
