Restoring my old remington

Postby BIGERN76 » Tue Feb 03, 2009 5:50 pm

I have an older remington 700 CDL 30/06 and would like to reblue it and refinish the stock. I was hoping some of yall had some experience with this and could point me in the right direction. I love the way it shoots and just have no desire to replace it.

Man, I tried for an hour to get on that sight last night and couldn't. I could open the home page but when I tried to go somewhere from there, it said the server was too busy. :?

if you want it done right, take it to a gunsmith and have it done. bluing appears easy, but a lot of work and time to get right. I have done some cold bluing, but it is never as good as if it were dipped. on the other hand, you could always have it coated to make rust proof and a lot more durable finish, looks cool too is they mix some colors. .02
