I picked up a Marlin 80G from either 1960 or 1961 for $90 and then Model 60 from 1987, so long barrel, long may tube and last shot hold open for $75. Stripped both stocks and started cleaning....

Yuck. Looks like it was never cleaned. Looking forward to the finished product and then the range report.

I'm hoping the 80G is as accurate as my 25s, I want it to be my main bolt gun, plus the boys have claimed the 25s.

Great looking stocks for sure. The 60 sure shows you how dirty 22's can get. It look just like the one my Grandson and I have been working on, we just received the new hammer for it. We are putting it back together next weekend.

Good job on the refinishing so far Matt...

I own a Model 80C from 1960 and a Glenfield Model 60 from 1980.

MattNH, really like the way the stocks are turning out! Nice job! What did you use to strip the old finish off?

Citris strip and a plastic scrapper.

Snow day today, another coat of stain on the stocks, no new pics though.

Cleaned up the trigger guard and smoothed out the shoe of the Model 60 trigger with a dremel and re-blued.

More coats of Tung Oil on the stocks. Final paint on the receiver. Reassembled the cleaned action and trigger.

I need to order the Williams fiber optic dovetail barrel mount set for the 60. I'm waiting on a Model 100 style trigger guard for the 80G. I'm happy with the 60 stock, I think a few more coats on the 80G.

aluminum

What are you using for paint?
Purchased at Home Depot. Specifically mentions working on aluminium on the label.
