    Shooters here is a picture of a refinish job that the customer has not even seen yet. Sorry for the reflections but I am not very good with the camera.

    Thanks for looking!

    It takes 6 weeks so the finish is good and cured and does not sink. There is about 15 coats on this one. The cost is 400.00

    Rod, I have a comb I need you to work on. I'll give you a call later.

    Thanks,

    What type of finish is it Rod? Is it a two part finish? 15 coats would make me think that it is oil. Looks very nice. Jon

    Namvet,


    No F'ing WAY! Cracked 3200 forearms are what has me looking into K-80s. Of course you did say it is an other than Krieghoff component.... not meaning to disparage anyone mind you.


    I'm just hyper about cracks--unless they are of the female persuasion.

    It probably can be fixed but without it in my hands I don't really know. I would have to see it with the metal attached.
