Get out your best pics and post em here. Stripped off the blue to antique it? Post it here. Refinished those ugly orange grips or stock? Post it here. Sent it in and got it Turnbulled? Post it here. Before and after pics are appreciated.

I'll bite... I'll have to move the pic's to my computer but I'd enjoy posting some of my work for all to see.

Here's one to get started with (had the photo's on my work computer)..

Marlin Papoose rifle that was given to me by my Ma-inlaw. Not a whole lot of work needed but clean up and re-blue.

I don't have before pics but this bad boy spent 3 weeks under water after Katrina and my dad has been working on it since.

Great rebluing job! Did you do that yourself?

Old Man,

Would you like to share the procedure you used to do the fine job you did on the Barrel? "Great Job!" :)

I got one
Colt Compact before and with idiot scratch
After Novak sights and Metaloy hard chrome and new thumb safety

I've been thinking about making my Desert Eagle a two tone but I'm hesitant because of the upper rails getting to much chrome screwing up the slide.
It's to expensive a gun to not have it working perfectly. Has anyone here tried it & can they post a pic?

Sure thing...

This particular rifle was not as bad off as it seemed so I was able to use Oxpho Blue cold blue to restore the finish. The reciever is an alloy so it recieved a few coats of Dura Coat.

For anything more involved, I would use a hot blue. Outside of course since it's very caustic and my shop is not suitable (ventilation).. I've not done any parkerizing yet but that will be next. Most of my work is blueing or DuraCoat.

my stoeger 12ga O/U that i refinished the stock and forearm on. i have never been a big fan of high gloss finishes. always liked the hand rubbed oil finishes better.
