I recently posted on here about a "wierd" rifle I bought at a smoking price and I tore it down cleaned is as best I could and took it shooting. I loved it so I decided I would restore it and use it next elk season. I have a few questions about refinishing the metal and what gripping surface I should do. I looked at stippling and checkering and checkering seems pretty difficult.. The r the Finnish on the metal needs to be pretty rugged but still traditional looking. Any feed back is greatly appreciated.
