So I've got a model 99 in 300 savage. Absolutely love this rifle. I inherited it from my father in law. Functions great and I really enjoy shooting it.
Although it functions well it looks like it wouldn't. Furniture is semi-ok, but I've found companies that sell NOS stuff and reproduction. If I...
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?
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...
Refinishing ak47/smith work in Seattle or close surrounding areas
Looking to have some light AK specific gunsmithing and refinish work done to a couple of Yugo under folders so I can sell them.
Any input would be helpful
Picked up a nice mk v in 300 wby. It dates to 1962, and at first examination it looked like a nice example. 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...
This is a Smith & Wesson model 27 from the early 70's, some previous owner engraved their driver's license number on the gun, in two places....it also had some holster wear and mild rust pitting...I removed the graffiti and polished it up, then reblued it.

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...

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. :)...
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:
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...
