The Mossberg 380 rifle project

Another month, another refinished gun. This one is a Mossberg model 380 semi-auto .22 rifle. Someone had spilled or exposed the rifle to a chemical that caused some localized corrosion.
Anyway, I removed the pits and polished the metal before rebluing it via the hot salts method.
