Restoring a Stevens 44.

This project required the receiver be annealed, then fine bead blasting to remove rust from the pitting.

I recut all the engraving following the original cuts. Then file and sand to remove 80% of the pitting.

Recut again and enhance the shading lines. After being case colored it will look like an antique

restored but in good condition and valuable.

Cost for everything with new barrel address is, $650.00.
