Mr. Khan sent me his two sets of Winchester Model 21 barrels about two weeks ago as a result of this thread. Each set of barrels is from a different Model 21 that he has, one is 28" and the other is 30", both circa early 1940's guns.

All polishing is by hand.

As requested on this forum, via PM, I am posting the before pictures and the in process pictures and finally of course the finished barrels.




BEFORE, AS RECEIVED....4 pictures....









IN PROCESS....4 pictures....

Beautiful work, Doug! Seems like everything you touch ends up great. Thanks for posting these pictures. I think you've got the high gloss rust bluing down to a fine art.

Well done. Looking at the result you never think of the condition that they came from.

Please tell me that the owner intends to replace that Bradley bead with a real ivory bead. One of my pet peeves is to see a classic gun with a plastic glow worm or one of those fake ivory on a stick sights. They look OK on a Remington 1100 Skeet gun but not so much on a nice double.

I wish those barrels were for my gun and Mr. Khan had mine. Nice work Doug. That's beautiful.
