Is that not a Model 49 DL that you have stripped the paint from the receiver?

Halwg yes it is. reason i am refinishing is that someone had taken some black gloss paint and and had about 10 coats put on with a brush so you could just picture that right. ::) will put up more pics when finished.

Doesn’t look bad like it is. How are you going to do with the receiver?

One option is that you could use aluminum polish and make it shine. If you don’t like it then paint it.

I agrree, it looks better as a stainless rather than blacked.

My wifey's model 60 had the receiver stripped before I bought it, so I'm stipping off the barrel blue & buffing it back to a stainless finish, then I'll put some protectant on it :)
