    devcon steel is a 2 part mix that is used to fill holes in pistons!
    the stuff sets like, well, steel.
    it is a very good bedding material as it has practly no shrinkage as it sets, they also make an alluminium and a titanium mix, i mite get the titanium next time as it is very light, but bloody expencive!

    Cheap TM rifle



    SH stock of TM getting pillars and bedding



    cleaning threads and front face of action




    SH TM barrel getting the ream after threading



    Modding a Rem mount and the action and setting up with 15moa tilt





    Mod the saftey



    and bolt to clear the scope





    Now painted black...green was a base to put a paterned black over but just went black in the end.

    this was just an excuse to use a barrel I picked up cheap....so figured a cheap build was in order. under $500 for all the bits includeing the reamer (6.5x6mmRemAI) and it shoots the 140gr pills at 3K like a dream

    i use loupold for no other reason than their durability, and after sales support. no open sights so i need it to hold up to severe conditions and abuse.

    I use a Loupy too mate, but on my old A-Bolt! A Swaro on top of your rifle would look mighty fine.

    Remington 870 Wingmaster

    Hi guys, first post!
    Picked up this old girl for next to nothing. Made in 1954. Wouldn't even cycle was so rusty.







    $30 on rust bluing consumables, a new stock from the states, and a new sight bead, and good as new.

    Very cool. Any chance of a basic write up on the rust bluing process and some detail/cost of where you got the parts to do it?

    cheers

    Some awesome work on that shotgun, When I was 14 my dads mate gave me a old side by side and Its fore grip kinda blew off half way through opening weekend so I sellotaped it back on and kept using it till that Sunday night I decided that I need a new one and since I liked building stuff I thought I would have a crack, any way it took me 6 hours working on it and although it doesn't look great it worked which was the main thing.
