Chilean Mauser 98 007.jpgfellas, I'm done with these kind of projects for awhile and this little Mauser is my "work" gun so it has special meaning and it turned out well. Jobs like these on a Mauser takes its toll on me as there is quite a number of parts to polish and degrease to get to the point of satisfaction. I've no handy equipment cept' doing all by hand and some stainless pots and snow for boiling.
That Redfield 70 was a challenge, big fingers holding small parts was a clumsy thing but it turned out nicely. The bolt/striker etc was all done as well and now it is just "seasoning".....safe spot is back in its furniture and not lying around in my reloading area which is somewhat cluttered.
Somewhere down the road I will try my Gun Goddess solution out......have a few firearms in mind to do.
