If you can shoot with your boy, that's a good enough excuse to shoot from which ever side you want. My boy is a bit older, but still a college kid. Over the last two weeks I threw many hundreds of hand and cheapie spring thrower targets for him. Coac

The wood is certainly not bad. It has enough character to distinguish it above just plain grade. Pretty much standard quality for those guns. This one's above average but the forend is plain as your hand: https://images.gunsinternational.com/lis...7

Yeah not sure about the butt plate, was curious about the wood grade for Brownings. Seemed a little more figured for a grade 1.

Wood doesn't shrink enough to cause something as glaring as that ill-fitted butt plate. From 100 year old Parkers to 50 year old Superposeds, the butt plates all still fit perfectly with almost very few exceptions. https://images.squarespace-cdn.com

Would those acidic or other rust removal options work for hot blue, cold blue, etc? Or just for rust blued steel?

It's normal to that particular model. Way beyond Select grade. There is between 25 and 50% figure, so perhaps an A+ grade. The Browning M12s had well fitted buttplates - this one is just showing the effects of 30 years of wood drying and shrinking

Absolutely beautiful collection Vall! Stunning. And of course, you know I love that M1881 Marlin. This sure all makes for a great day at our gunshow today. By the way, that Marlin half SRC - what caliber?

I had a Midland XXV Featherweight 12 bore, except it had 28" barrels. It carried nicely and I shot it very well on quail, grouse and woodcock. It weighed 6lb, 1 oz after I put a pad on it. Like a fool I sold it.

I find a barrett file very handy for "backing up" abrasive cloth next to the ribs, they can get a little closer than half round. Mike

If it is still on the market, brick cleaner "Sur Kleen"(?) used full strength works immediately, but has to be washed off immediately also, or it will cause pitting. As far as bluing over old finish that doesn't need polishing, SKB is abso

My lightest is a 5 lb 10 oz, 16 ga N Guyot, which I shoot fine. Most of the rest of my upland guns weigh between 6 lbs and 6 lbs 9 oz. At my age, a shotgun in the vicinity of 6 lbs is a blessing when hiking around some of the Snake River or other r

Steve, if a rust-blued barrel did not need the polish, but did need to tidy up thinning blue, could you just clean it well blue over it? Seems that the well blued areas would not really change much while the thin spots caught up. Never had the cour
