    Very nice work. It looks great. What did you use to refinish the barrel?

    I reblued it, using the same methods the factory did: Hot Salts Bluing

    I've got an older one, no dovetail. Blueing is pretty thin, More brown, but it will likely stay that way as it is a great shooter. Pulled the trigger on it about 40 years ago. It's a 1952.

    Opposite side pick, But look at the angle of the bolt handle! Your has been modified.
