I did that and everything went back together okay. But the thumb safety apparently didn't seat correctly, even though it went back together. I'll try it again after I get another coat of finish on the parts I scratched.

The parts that needed it are now re-coated and baking in the oven.

I hope I can get it properly reassembled. I surely don't want to take a "bag gun" to the gunsmith's.

Ah yes, the wonderful "bag of shame" as my local gunsmith refers to it.
Seems he's had a few people try and take guns apart and they cant get them back together. Yours wouldnt exactly be a bag of shame since you can get it back together and its something else.
Hope it turns out a'ight.

It looks good. With that camo scheme, are you using it on ducks?

Get yourself a set of Navidrex Micarta stocks and paint them a solid color. Brownells GunKote would do those hex head screws well, too.

Sorry, I'm typing what is in my head again.

Nice finish job.

Looks like Florida.

Thanks for the compliments. There were a ton of mistakes in that coating. It was also one of the first ones I ever coated.
