Remington 550-1

Pleased with how this little Remington 550-1 turned out. The lettering was so caked and rusted that it looked/felt nearly invisible.#gunsmithing #restoration #remington

Find of the Day

Interesting find this morning: took the butt plate off a 40’s Winchester double, and the stock is completely crammed with lead shot and wadding. Probably an attempt to reduce felt recoil, it’s all solidified now and has to be chipped out slowly.
