Ok I have started work on my latest project a Mossberg Model 46B(b) I have stripped it down and started to work on removing the finish on the wood. Here is where I am at now. I am at the 400 grit sanding stage. I am still up in the air on how I am going to finish the metal. It is down to three things. 1. Brownells Alumyhyde II in mate black 2. Brownells Oxpho-Blue cold blue 3. Gunsmith hot tank blue job. If I can find a decent smith that will blue it after I strip it for a decent price I may go that route as it will give me the best finish results.
