    grip refinish - buffalo horn

    I've got this crack in my buffalo horn grips on my SAA. Bothering me. I tried Hogue grips but they don't come fitted. Thinking of sanding these down with fine grit. Similar to filling a wood repair with saw dust. Any suggestions?

    Beretta slide refinish

    Looking for a reputable gunsmith to do a cerakote on my beretta 92a1 slide. I messed up the finish installing a few parts and am using it for an excuse to get a different finish on the slide, maybe a matte black or slightly lighter color. I’m in the Olympia wa area but am willing to travel for...

    Weatherby mk v stock refinish

Metal is is in great condition, but the wood had been recoated with polyurethane over the original lacquer, a bloody mess to try and get off. Making progress now using scraping technique...

    SBR - refinish after engraving or leave it plain?

    At some point this year, after this stupidity from the covid passes and things normalize, I want to form 1 my AR pistol to an SBR, one of the things I'm wondering - how many of you guys who have been there, done that, have your lower refinished (anodized or paint on finish) vs leaving the...

    Starting to refinish my Romanian AK-47 stock set

    Marlin 39M - refinish, or leave it alone?

    I have a 39M in very good shape, however the "buttpad" does not line up perfectly with the stock, and I don't care much for the thick "Mar-shield" finish, and I was even thinking of thinning down the fore end a little. On the other hand, it is easier to do nothing than to do something. :)...

    Duracoat Refinish

    I had this AMD65 clone that was built by shop in Boise ID about 12 years ago. The gun shot well but I hated how it was finished. Every component had a different finish making the gun look like a POS :) I decided to give Duracoat a try in HK black and this is how it turned out:

    First thread: Ishapore 2A1 Cerakote?

    Well, I guess I get the first thread... funny. So, I've got this 1960's Ishapore 2A1 7.62 NATO rifle. For those who don't know, it's essentially just an Indian-made Lee Enfield. Anyways, when I bough it, it had this nasty black paint (I think lead-based) that was flaking off of the metal all on...
