Remington 512 Sportmaster refinish

Another one, this one is a Remington 512 Sportmaster (the second one I have done). It wasn't in too bad of shape, the stock needed some cleaning up. Then I polished and reblued most of the steel parts

Great job. I've also got a 512 that needs a restoration like this (but my metal is in even worse shape). What bluing did you use?

Beautiful restoration work.

I worked on a similar gun (513?) and even had an article published in American Gunsmith on it. The one I worked on was bead blasted and blued.
