Damn, buddy . . . you really breathe new life into those neglected guns! That's some amazing work. Thanks for posting the pics; it's cool not only to see the before/after photos, but also to see the pics of the process, so we can see part of what's involved.

:cheers2:

I did this one the same time as the two Rugers, the owner wanted a 2-tone finish like I did on the Norinco 1911, it is a Star Model BM 9mm. Here are the before pics:
Image
Image


Here it is after I stripped the old finish using naval jelly
Image


I then wire wheeled the parts to see what would need polishing

Image


Here it is after the 1st pass on the buffer, the owner wanted high gloss on the sides and rough texture on the top, bottom, front and back.

Image

So after polishing the sides I taped off the polished areas and sand blasted the frame & slide with garnet

Image

Here it is after polishing & sand blasting, ready for a final degrease, then bluing

Image

Here is the finished product

Image

from this angle you can see the 2-tone finish
