Default One of my Mustangs

I got this little guy plain jane with a few handling marks and sent it to Jim Downing who engraved the slide and reblued it after. I then added the sambar grips. One of my favorites to carry.

Here's before and after pics.





I did the same thing with my nickled Mustang II but it got MOP grips.

Doc Neely, that is beautiful.

Mosin Nagant, just didn't like the red color. for the hardcore purists- I'm sorry. Picture sucks, but it's colonial walnut stained. I don't even know what kind of wood it is, I know there were several types used.

An amazing example of a truly perfect refinish!

This is the outfit that did the refinish. It's a husband & wife team and they're good people. Link: CCR-REFINISHING

Default Winchester Mod. 290

Here's one I did for a friend of mine a little while back. A new process I used here was draw filing round surfaces... Restored the reciever finish with DuraCoat and refinished the stock to match original look. Enjoy.

Default More of the Winchester

Barrel and Loading tube were pitted .. Looks as though it was stored muzzle down in a bucket of water.. All pitting was removed prior to reblue and paint Despite what the one picture shows..
