well i decided to remodel my Savage m93r17 rimfire rifle after owning it now for about seven years. it is the 21" heavy barrel in the synthetic stock. the stock has the molded in trigger guard, which is something i have never liked about it, just makes it look cheap. so the other night i ordered a Boyd's laminated stock, and ordered a trigger guard and screws from Savage. should be here next tuesday or wednesday. i cleaned and stripped all the blueing from the barrel and action, then refinished them in a stainless silver epoxy appliance paint i found at Lowes. it has been working great on another rifle, so i decided to try it out on this one. when it dries, it looks just like stainless steel. just waiting on the parts to get here, so i can put it back together.
