  1. Repairing Your Guns
    I want to do a little work on a 1982 39A. The gun is in fine shape, but I want to make the wood a little nicer. I want to sand it down to bare wood and refinish it, but I'm not too sure how to go about it. I like the Linseed oil but I'm not sure if I want to go that dark on it, and I think the...
  2. The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello all, I purchased a beautiful 2009 JM-marked stainless 1895GS 45-70 last Saturday and decided immediately that I wanted to remove the checkering and refinish the furniture. At the same time, I slimmed down the forestock as it seemed unnecessarily bulky or "fat". Kind of reminded me of a...
  3. H&R/NEF Shotguns
    Howdy fellow H&R owners! I recently acquired a Topper Model 58 from Cabela's for about $120. The break and ejector function fine, but the wood was all scratched to hell and so was the for-end. Since this is something I plan on keeping for a very long time, I decided to sand off the old finish...
  4. 336
    Hey there, I have two Marlin rifles. A 336 30-30 and a Golden 39-A .22 S.L./LR. that were my grandfather's beaver and squirrel guns. I've had them for about a year now and they both shoot really well. Since they've been field tested they've been pretty beat up. I've completely broken them down...
  5. 336
    I just sanded down my stock and refinished it with tung oil for the first time. But I ran into a small problem, the butt plate is a little wider then the stock. I was wondering if anyone out there has ran into this in the past, and what did you do to fit it? I will post before and after photos...
  6. The .35 Remington
    Hi, I just want to brag a little since I'm proud of how my gunstock came out. When I got the gun a few months ago, the wood had scratches and dings, and I did not like the original finish anyway, so I decided to refinish it. And just for kicks, I decided to not use the modern polyurethane...
  7. 336
    First post here on the forums, so here goes: I just purchased my first beater 336C. The bluing is pretty beat and I want to strip it and put a Cerakote (bake on finish). Then I'll either refinish or replace the stock. My question is regarding the Cerakote. Are there any parts that are too...
