Old stevens 12ga gets a make over.
Hey guys recently picked up this old 12ga for the express purpose of refinishing it and trying my hand at all this stuff. Anyways took only 2 days and maybe 6-8 hours worth of work. I used Minwax for all the wood used the pre-coat then finished with the ebony followed by 4 coats of the (poly?) clear coat. For the metal parts I simply used 3 coats of OD green flat rustoleum, I got some clear gloss finish but ended up not using it cause I like the flat look. Anyways enough talk time for some pics.

Sorry about only the before pics being posted I got a message saying only 4 pics per post so i remove the finished and planned to make a second post then it had to be approved by a mod, Cause I'm new or something I guess so I had to wait for the thread to pop up to reply. Anyways here are the rest of the pics

That looks nice, I recently picked up a similar Savage with a busted stock and just started on building a new one. I'm thinking about parkerizing mine with a kit I bought to refinish my 03-A3 it worked great. who knows I might even cut it down and make it tactical

Please don't tell me that you spray painted it:eek:

Looks good. My dad has the same thing, and is restoring the furniture. He did it once, but he did it too light. Hopefully this time he can get a darker stain on it and make it look better.

the wood looks nice and the OD green is a good match! My NEF 12ga has a nice looking finish but it scratches VERY easily, I'm thinking about maybe re-doing it myself..
