Decided to wait till I was done to post this one up. Found this Steven's 410 breakover in rough shape at the lgs. The price was right so i Decided to make it a youth for my son, 6 years old, since I have some chamber adapters for 410 to 9mm luger. Figured it would be a cheap way to train him and not have to buy 410 shells. Anyway I tore it all the way down, refinished the stocks, cut the barrel down to 18.5 , coated it with VHT ceramic. All done except to recap for the front bead sight, have to buy a smaller tap set, also debating a clamp on fiber front sight. The finish didn't come out the way I wanted, was my first time with vht and when I baked it on I got lines from the oven racks (should have hung the parts by wire from the bottom of rack, slap myself on the back of the head). I figure after a few years of him learning and beating the gun up I will sand it down and re-coat again. Enjoy the before and after pics. Picture of coating and varnish cans if curious as well.

Nothing like taking something old and making it new again. Added bonus when you teach a youngster what goes into keeping the heritage alive. Good work.
