Another quick share, and have spend right at 5 months on this one. I decided I wanted to do a frame off on this rifle, as it was well worn, much rash on the stock, and the bluing was showing that of a well used shooter. All the dents were steamed out, and I started out with Waterlox originally, but it didn't work just the way I wanted it, so back down with the wood. I tried a product called Liberon Finishing Oil, 5 coats wiped on then off, several days between with a touch of Liberon 0000 steel wool. Then used Liberon Black Bison Wax 4 coats. It turned out pretty nice and feels nice. The action was sent to a hot bluer in 3 pieces, the charging arm, receiver and rear plug. They did a fantastic job on it. I didn't want to go the cold blue route. I tried to mimic a case harden on all of the action screws, first by cleaning them up, then bluing with 4440 cold blue. Each screw was run up in flame to about 1200 F just till I saw the impurities starting to flame out, then dropped them in thick gear oil. They actually turned out pretty good. I replaced the charging handle pin with a new one as the old one was a couple thousands under the new, ARH seals, Artic Spring, new cast ring. Muzzle break was spun out of delrin and has a set screw in the bottom that lands in the knock out for the OEM front sight, machined by Thomas Murray, and a fine job he did. Rifle is shooting 660 fps with JSB 7.33's, and seems to be very accurate like most I have seen. Sportsmatch two piece rings for the FWB dedicated, and the new Nikon EFR. New butt pad, Anschutz accessory rail, and also the sled rebound spring.

Here are some pics of the progress, hope you enjoy,

And package returned,

Thanks for looking,

Jason,

Nice job, one to be proud of for sure! I love a good bluing job, fact is you did an all around good job. I would love to know the cost of such a bluing but feel it would be rude to ask. Appreciated you sharing this, fact of the matter, I appreciate hearing anything with regards to Feinwerkbau!

Cheers

Well, trying to find hot bluers around here is tough.  I sent out a few RFQ's, and went ahead and tried this shop, small town, good reviews.  The blue job was $175 back to my door.  In my mind, these rifles are worth it to try and put back in top shape.  The shop doesn't do take downs, and don't blame them.  Anyhoo, just a mention to let folks know that some of these old warbirds can have and do have potential to bring back to life like new, being we can't just buy these off the shelf anymore.
