    Sears 46C (Marlin 56)

    Found a beat-up 1963 Sears 46C (Marlin 56), haggled 'em down to $70
    Surface rust everywhere, but no pitting...stock was missing much of it's clearcoat.

    First thing to do was to take it apart & clean the barreled action...0000 steel wool & Hoppes gun oil.

    Then after a fast function test to make sure everything worked ok, pulled the stock back off & started sanding.



    1st coat Old Dad's Pecan Stain.


    Completed



    Decided to add a Marlin sling...

    A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

    Congrats on it... now... try some Flitz and a soft cloth on that blued metal and see even more "brown" lift and transfer to your cloth.

    I Flitzed the 336 that is my avitar pic and when I saw all that brown on the cloth it scared the crap out of me. When I was done I ended up with a beautiful rifle and 52 years of dirt on the cloth.

    I've heard that it's salts coming up from the blueing process... whatever it is... I know that my rifles just look SOOO much "more gooder" afterwards, the shine on the blueing is better.

    Side note... don't use the Flitz on Color Case Hardened... it turns it gray. Don't ask me how I know this.
