    Freedom is not free. Some will perish to preserve it for the many. Just as our Forefathers did before us, we must take up the battle and not waver. Victory is our only option.

    I did the math and increased it till it would cover the parts in the kettle.

    not the greatest pics. the handguards are from ironwood, the original was damaged. the engraving was by mario at POHF, he does the best work I have seen.

    There is still some cosmo around the rivets and nooks/crannies I need to clean up, plus it really soaked up the oil and could use some more..

    Did you do the top cover as well or just the receiver? Was that bead blasted prior to blueing? It looks really good. I can not wait.

    Top cover is original finish. it was bead blasted. i did the receiver/trigger guard/trunnion/rear block. The pictures do not do it justice. the finish matches perfect, it is just holding oil in some places. the kits look highly polished when you get them, but clean off all the oil and cosmo and they are a matte finish.

    The matching of the top cover to the receiver is rather amazing given they were done by different processes and times. Looking at the picture you can not see any difference in the top cover overlap and the receiver.

    I was planning on using aluminum oxide beads to blast and then blue. Now to just get some tanks/pans.

    Thanks for the pics and info.

    my blast media is a mixture, mostly aluminum oxide but it does have some black beauty and some super fine stuff in it also..

    the finish is an exact match. i'll try to finish cleaning/oiling up and post some better pics. i think I'll do my Tabuk sniper this week if I can get 555th to cooperate..
