Photos? I'd like to see what you have to work on. Try some steel wool first, 000 for starters to see firm the paint is on the metal. Rub the metal with the steel wool to see if it comes off easily . . . need to see photos.
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on removing spray paint from barrel and receiver. Unfortunately, I don't know if it's water-based or oil-based paint. I'll start out in the hopes that its water-based and only tried the harsher methods if it proves necessary.
Zooowie! Nice shiny gun. I like it. I'll take it ifin ya don't want it Fox Creek Kid. Are those Buffalo Brothers grips. I especially like those. One problem with that gun..........it's too pretty to shoot. How's it handle the black?
Gripmaker grips if I recall, from a pattern he didn't advertise then, if I recall. Handles BP just fine, but I use a big lube style bullet and use more lube than a sailor on shore leave in Hong Kong on the cylinder pin.
So, I was wondering if y'all had any idea how much a Rolling-block (centerfire) action that is safe to use would go for? I'm kind of wanting a rolling block, but for sure and certain can't afford one that is already built. So I'm wanting to get an action, barrel and stocks all separate (hopefully cheap, too) and build it my self. I guess this is two questions in one, then. A) how much is an action, and B) will it be less expensive and feasible for someone with little experience?
