    Can anybody recommend anyone/any place that will do a quality refinish in the Portland metro area?

    while i am not a Gun smith i have seen and shot worse and am alive and never had the gun have issues.
    as a colector i would not touch , or have any one refinish the M27 because even as it sits it will be worth more then if you have it
    refinished.

    i would have it cleaned and checked for safety that would be all. you would be best served by posting your Q? here

    Looks fine. I've done up a few mosins. That pitting is not going to harm its function. In fact it isn't all that bad really. I've seen much worse.
    Here is my most resent sporter.

    I appreciate the replies. They have greatly reduced my concern.

    saxon, thanks for the link; that forum is very informative.

    Reno911, thanks for seconding the opinion that the firearm is fine.

    Back in the 1960's I had a job re-welding heavily pitted Mexican short action Mausers to be made into 243 win custom rifles.
    I am no expert on moistens but I bet it will shoot for a year or two w/ factory ammo!
    personally, I would sell it and buy a Savage
