Winchester model 97 refinish

Another refinishing project, this one a Winchester model 97



One thing I learned is that the finish on these old guns is not as smooth as people believe them to be. Bluing does hide some of that. Anyway, this gun belonged to a family member who passed away, I was asked to refinish it for whomever was going to inherit the gun. It is a 12 gauge, take-down made in 1926
