    So...looking at the better pic, I am sure this is blue over a stripped receiver. Not a very good job of either. You should bead blast before finish to make sure your coverage and finish are even. ...

    Fun for a project but I think getting a new one is better. I had an Uzi mag here that had been blocked and welded shut...and the spring was as tough and resilient as the finest bailing wire. ...

    Agreed, but I think if he shows us his will be blued. Just what we can see shows streaks like parkerizing that has been polished off instead of bead blasted. Can't be sure.

    I just mean good quality full power. Even stingers or yellow jackets...but I suppose that's short there right now. Gun will work fine I think...

    I wish the picture was a bit more overall...usually it means the subject was BLUED with a bath that wasn't strong enough. With a Winchester it means the subject contains some nickel and can either...

    I saw the small crack, you'll need to clean out all the old glue first and the residual oil. I used to use "microbed" by Brownell's but don't know if they still make it. Saw the ring in the bore,...

    If you place a WTB here in forum, these guys have nost everything in their pockets. Someone will have.

    Yes, thinking it must be about Hurtgen or Ardennes because of the coats and canvas sling there. No ammo in belts so some sort of rear area move I guess...?

    Sort of what I implied...actually said. Wonder where he went?

    I had a carbine but a later one, not much left for rifling either. I was lucky and sold it here for a bit over what I paid. Got out clean. Canada isn't the place to try to do well with these...

    Makes sense. That evidence, or rather testimony puts to rest the stories that the military never used those marking color crayons.

    Well Frank, if that's the type he has then it's one of the repros being currently sold to fill the empty spot. They aren't as good as they look in pics. They don't cost much but that's what they're...

    That's right. You can't magic a crown but before you worry you need to shoot it. To re-crown you need a lathe and you can simply strip the rifle to a barreled action and it goes into the headstock...
