    Thought I would show you a before and after photo of a sc I bought that someone had blued reciever on. Gun belonged to a active shooter in its day so had been shot alot. Had reciever restored to what it was supose to look like and the barrle brought back on face the correct way. Gun looks and functions like a new one now. Bill

    Very nice. How was the gun put back on-face? Replace the hinge-pin, or shim the hook in some fashion? Who did the case colors? More pics would be great. Thanks

    Whoever did the restoration work sure looks like they know what they are doing. Very good of you to restore a nice old gun to its former glory. That one should be around for a few shooters to come.

    Back on face and case colors are all that was done. Finish and barrel are the same as when I got it. It came out of Minnesota. I believe the owner was State Champ more than once. The gentleman I bought it from was well into his 80's and his Father-in-law had given it to him I believe. I got the lead on the gun on here and drove over to Duluth to pick it up. Paid 2500 and 800 for the work done. Oh ya period correct recoil pad also. Thanks for your comments. Work was done at Mark's Born Again Bird Guns in Wisc. He has just been invited to join the American Gun Makers Guild. I am not sure if he's Russian or not! LOL Bill

    Too funny Bill, good for you. That new room isn't going to be big enough the way you're going. Bob
