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.

Old Man,

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

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.

Default my latest project, stoeger 12ga O/U shotgun

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.
