Ruger Mark II Restoration (this one is pretty bad)
« on: December 21, 2011, 08:35:10 AM »
Cliffs:

- Was in a flooded basement
- Not cleaned in something like 10 years (owners words)
- I took it on as a charity restoration for the owner, a retired army vet.

Stage 1 = Prep & Cleaning
Stage 2 = Duracoated Black, new fiber optic sights and new grips





















First coat has been done.

I gave it a \"textured\" spray by increasing my spray distance and giving the Duracoat a split second to partially dry mid-air.  The final coat later tonight will completely seal this up (though as is it isn\'t going anywhere).

(any \"unevenness\" is due to camera flash or desktop lamp)







Still waiting for the Hogue wrap around grips and the fiber optic front sight to come in. Hope I can have it in time for X-Mas.

Got the final coat done last night to seal it up.

Few minor details to finish out, but exterior done for most part.

His fiber optic front sight and wrap around grips should be here this week so we can present it to him next sunday.
