Default Mosin 91/30 finally done

Like it Love it or Hate it but its pink

after a few weeks of refinishing one of my 91/30's as an experiment to see how well i could refinish a stock i finally got the last pieces together and complete this morning.

the stain is minwax cherry blossom the finish is formby's tung oil gloss finish. i took out the stamped sling estuchions and made some out of brass stock to match the brass end caps.

i think i made 8 estuchions total before i got it down well enough to get 4 good ones. i did some pink fill on the sight range ladder and some of the arsenal markings and serial number. i think it pulls it all together.

anyway here are the pics

Before:



After:











sorry im not a better photographer.

taking it out sunday to sight in.

i like pink guns when its done well. hello kitty type stuff is just wrong. ive got three other mosins one is a sniper which was shellaced with cosmo or oil still on the stock so its flaking off in chunks and just looks like total hell. i want to refinish it in a nice russian red stain and then shellac it like an original.

i saw the pink stain in the hardware store and inspiration hit me that this was the way to go to get the technique down. i can always sand it down and put a traditional color back on it if the value of mosins ever goes up substantially. but i think it is probably worth more pink to a certain sector of gun buyers if i do decide to sell it.

That is interesting. I am wondering about the serial number and receiver markings; how did you color them?
