    Did some work on the 11-48 Remington shotgun tonight. Tomorrow,it goes out to get blued. I have the forearm finish sanded and 1/2 way on the buttstock.Kinda hoping to have the buttstock finish sanded tomorrow and perhaps the first coat of Tru oil on. 20200813_223753.jpg

    Last coat on.I decided to let the blackened spot on the buttstock be as it will have a story behind it.Overall, the stock came out spectacular considering I have never attempted to do it before. Maybe in a couple years,I'll give it back to our neighbors son. He's not really a gun person though.I can't wait to get the blued piece back and replacement barrel and get it all together again. 20200817_185907.jpg

    Is that a 1970 Buick I spy in the background?

    The only Buick I’ve ever owned was the 65 Riviera GS with clam shell headlights. I got 50% through restoration, & got offered too much $$$ to pass on. I learned there is a cult following for older Buick’s!

    A little progress and setback today..Today,when I got home,the new to me 16 gauge barrel was sitting on my kitchen table,but I also was contacted by the guy who is going to blue the receiver part of the 11-48.He asked if I could wait till end of September/early October till he got caught up on some other things and it would be a lot cooler for him to work. I am in no hurry so he sent the receiver back to me for now. The barrel from Numrich Gun parts is exceptionally clean and has near perfect bluing on it so I wont have to worry about that. The bore of the barrel is very well kept too. I couldn't help myself as I loosely assembled the gun to see how it's going to look..I am happy with the results! 20200827_174105.jpg
