I'm no gunsmith by far, but I have a gun that can't get any worse!
I have an Arminius HW3 7shot revolver 32S&W. It's missing the emblem on the side of the frame, and the plastic handle is in crappy shape. The blue is terrible, and looks like a home job gone wrong.
I want to make a set of grips that fit my hand better, and look at refinishing the gun. What are the options on refinishing? How hard is it really? Like i said the gun isn't gonna get worse, I do believe it was another one of my grandfathers payments for a gambling debt, or one he got in a game of pool. Lots of my inherited firearms are the same case, but none in that bad a shape! It really is a nice firing revolver, smooth action, and perfect fit in my pocket, or boot. I just wish it were more appealing to the eye.
Here's what it looks like. I don't have a pic of mine handy.
