Right, so another lockdown weekend project. I am very happy with how it turned out, now it just needs to go pew pew.
Remington model 4, hex barrel. Circa 1920 I think. All in all pretty neat and tidy for what it is.
But, but, but, look at that beautiful patina. sexy, yes? It’s fucking rust!
So little maintenance was in order. Used @Supaduke’s magic stock cleaning methods with Bam. Dude is most definitely on to something, genius! It would have taken me hours with acetone, paint strippers and heat gun, what Bam does in 15 minutes. And I am not making this up, I’ve done it the hard way, never again! Spray, 15 min, clean, fresh oil, new wax, heat gun, done!
Steel was steamed and carded… That’s about it, a few hours of work while BBQ’ing. It’s actually a lot more than few hours, but when you’ve done this before a few times and have all the right tools, few hours…
After Bam (spray, wait, wash, dry, steel wool):
(1 application of blo and wax)
Could certainly go further, but I wanted to preserve. not refurb. So this is where I stopped on wood and steam only on steel.
