Default Finished another one for Nicholas

He doesn't know yet.

I picked up a New England Arms 20 gauge on a trade. It was pretty rough. I don't know where the hell the other pictures went. Barrel was poo poo, stock was banged up. This is one pic, the other side was worse.



Reblued and polished the barrel. Refinished the stock and fore grip. Cut the stock down to kid size and added a nice limb saver cushion.

Looks awesome!!! Hope he enjoys it!

Getting into stock and metal refinishing will be the next step for me once we get into a house.

I found it on a local facebook barter group. You would be surprised as to what you can find on these things. I know a guy that just traded a pile of magic the gathering cards that his kid grew out of for some kind of over and under .22 / 410 lever action thing.

Thanks guys. I like doing stocks. I don't care for re-bluing though. Hate that. I do a lot of polishing also....mostly barrels and controls of hand guns.

Very nice!

Can you give some details on products/methods you use? Any tips? I've got a shotgun coming in trade that is destined for this.

That's pretty much where I'm at now. A whole lot of barrel and action polishing and control surface polishing to smooth things out. ( )

I'm sure I'm not the only one interested in the process, tools and materials you use to refinish the stocks though. Can you share a bit more on that?

Nothing really special. Normal stripper for varnish and then sanding. Lots of sanding. After I get it sanded, then I use a wet towel and an iron on high and draws out the deep stain and gun oils.

Then I spray it with bleach cleaner spray and scrub it and rinse it. Then spray it with plain bleach and let it sit. When it dries I spray it again. I do this 2 or 4 times depending on how light I want the wood or how deep the old stain is.

Then rinse with water and let dry. Then rinse with vinegar to stop the bleaching process.

I have a rack I can put in my clothes dryer to hold shoes...I put the stock on there and run it on high to make sure the stock is dry dry dry.

Then final sanding...400, 600, 1000 grit.

Then apply the stain you want and let it dry. I heat the stock before applying.

Then I put usually 6 coats of clear on with a scrub down of 000 wool between coats.

After that is dry, but not fully cured I sand with 1000 and then 1500. Then I buff it with a car style buffer with a foam pad and Wizzard finishing compound. Then it's done. Let it sit to cure.
