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
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.
no worries I just hate to see a finn get reworked I mean the stories it could tell,,,
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
