    Has anyone ever wanted to just smack someone in the back of the head, becuase they used superglue to reglue the blade of sight to the front of a H&R to the barrel, and why do they always spray paint the wood black???:mad:
    I know that some of the H&R's came in black that were made with the blug barrels but why is it always srpay paint. :confused:

    I know how you feel. I had to strip the stock on a Marlin 25m after a little Hoppes got on it. Someone did a really good job but spray paint just does not hold up. Finished it with Tung Oil and floated the barrel while I was at it. I need to get it to the range.

    what i did to gun

    I stripped the paint of the wood stock. then i used a 120 sand paper then went to 220, 320 and finally went to a 400 to finish. The barrel is going to be duracoated for a black finish. and the wood is going to have a light mahogany coat with linseed oil added until i get the light red finish. I have done this on small tables so lets see how it looks on a gun.

    that right there is a good clean slate, me personally I like three tone tiger stripe camo, use to paint all my airsoft guns that way... just haven't gotten around to doing it with a real gun.

    good luck man hope it comes out the way you want it to.

    Black painted H&R like that from factory

    back in late 1990's I found the local varity store had a sale going on I bought a new Chinese SKS and a H&R 12ga single shot shotgun, both were display models and had scratched stocks, I bought the shotgun for $69 and the SKS $110 scratched varnish never botherd me any, I sanded off the ugly yella varnish on the SKS and Toung Oil'd it, The H&R I touched up the scratched stock paint with a Q-tip and some aerosol Krylon paint spritzed in the cap and dabbed on the stock

    I had thought about using the new stuff that you can spray on the gunstock and then place it in a large pan of water and it wraps the gunstock in camo, but i wanted the natural look. I will paint the barrel with duarcoat, or i might just hotblue the thing still not sure.

    I actually changed my mind when i started to finish the gun. I put a little of teh stain on a small part of the forearm and it turned out dull and really not what i wanted so i sanded it again and turned to a nice walnut colored stain. It actually came out really good. For me atleast i like the way ot came out. Then i used Birchwood casey blue and it came out really nice. looks good for a cold blue i haven't used it before so it was different and came out really nice. Maynard :)
