The Savage does not have the value to destroy by refinishing. I was hoping to blue it but cold blue looked terrible and having it done would be more expensive than the gun would be worth so I decided to Duracoat.

Looks good. I did an old Sears (winchester) Dbbl 20. All I did was the stock. It totally changed the old girl.

Well done!!! My dad had a pellet gun from his youth that was a similar project for me. Night and Day difference after some sanding and refinishing.
