    Thanks

    Used ready strip to get all the nasty finish off. Several rounds of sanding then Minwax mohogany stain followed by 3 coats Birchwood Casey tru-oil. Painted barrel and cover using Duplicolor High Heat 1200 degree ceramic black from Pep Boys.

    This kit was a combo grade B from DPH. It was all matching but was rated B due to the wood condition. Real happy how it came out.

    Hey pardner, did I hear a tap-tap-tap with that brick layers hammer. You did an excellent job on those rear tang rivets. Hell, the whole rifle looks good. Also like the way you finished the wood.

    It's just great that on a Sunday afternoon, a Romy is born (again). So now how many's left to do, was it 5 or 6? I will say that it's been fun working with you.

    Your getting so good at this, I'll just leave all the tools out and go on a trip.

    Nice Romy! And good deal from DPH. Did you get the bayonet from him too? Is it a Romy bayonet, or other?
