Here we go... 1972 in really bad shape. I am going to attempt to redo all the original parts and make it look as good as new, I hope.


I have disassembled all the part, put the barrel on the lathe and turned it down with sandpaper and a cutting bit to get the pitting out of the barrel. Here is what I have so far.

So far I have blasted all the metal parts, disassembled the trigger and have it all soaking for cleaning, started bluing the barrel and feed tube. Next week the work will continue and pictures to follow....

Ick, I have been so busy getting things ready to open a new business, Gun sales and Gunsmithing I finally got time to get to the Squirrels. Here is the next chapter of the refurb... The stock was stripped, sanded and restained. Going to start the top coat tomorrow. All the parts were blasted and sanded and ready for Duracoat (as soon as it arrives). The trigger has been taken down to 4.5lbs (I think I want to take it down to 3lbs.) The receiver has been polished on the inside and the bolt is polished and jeweled. The barrel and feed tube were an experiment that came out real cool... they are bronze/brown. I turned them on my lathe with sandpaper and had to use a metal bit to get some of the rust/corrosion pits out. Before I blued them I did alittle polishing on the wheel and left and then did a minor degreasing, as I blued them they turned brown/bronze.. real kewl affect. The pics don't do them justice... The story continues...

Wow, mine is mint compared to what this started out. I would never let get in that bad of condition! I have been offered 125.00 for it even today. I would put it up against any ruger 10/22 at any distance.

Venturer, this was a $40 pawn shop buy. It was in horrible shape so it was a bit of a challenge. Just wait until the finished product is completed.

I got my mod. 60 back in the 60s.It always had a really picky appetite,it particularly didn't like HP ammo.A couple years ago,after living in my shed for a few years the outside wasn't that great either.So,I bought another at a pawn shop,and combined them into 1 that shoots much better.No close-ups,but it looks fairly decent.
The other is my Winchester '06,S-L-LR pump.That one,I'll always have.

Well the Duracoat came in so the metal parts are painted. I am thinking about spraying them with clear satin tomorrow to match the rest of the gun.

And while the paint dried I started the disassembling process of the next build. An undated Marlin 989. It has a cracked walnut stock and a lot of wear.

Well, it is done. 4 lb trigger pull, all original parts. I may get a new feed tube as it still has some pitting but still looks good after bluing. Now off to the range this weekend to make sure it shoots straight.
