cabin fever color case
« on: February 11, 2019, 07:10:07 pm »
Got a buddy that bought a used Stevens 311 and to encourage his new found taste for "fine" firearms and needing something to keep the devil at bay I spiffed it up with fresh color. A basic once over lightly job at that.

Nice!  Understated - I like that - just right for an old gun .

Looks great. Is it traditional bone charcoal? I did a search on 'cabin fever color case', thinking it was a specific product but found nothing.

Glad you fellows like the looks of it. Yes it’s wood and bone color case. The “cabin fever” part refers to it being February and I’m ready to do something. Next week end I’m going primitive camping for the fun of it.

The CCH on the Shotgun really looks the BIZZ !!!

Primitive Camping.  OK.  Primitive Camping for the fun of it.  OK.  That would be somewhere like ... say ... The Stanley .. or maybe The Brown Palace??  Anywhere at Disney World ???  The Mark Hopkins in SF ??

I see, so it is bone charcoal. It looks really nice. Better than many I've seen on several gunsmith's websites. You really got a full spectrum of reds, yellows and blues.

Coffinmaker, I've heard of a couple of them places but never been there. I once paid $27 to stay in the Virginian hotel in Medicine Bow, they even have an inside privy with bath tub just down the hall from the room. Mostly my camping is like this:
