.22LR project i took on squires bingham m1600

I picked up a project rifle from some guys up in Everett, it was a mess when i got it. thought i would show what progress i have made on getting it back to a shooter.

heres what it looked like when it was given to me.


during disassembly








nasty ass barrel, never seen so much rust in my life on a rifle.




well, i got all the parts off it and started working on stripping the metals















I love my Whirlpool gun bench Dont you!?

Filled in the rust pits with stove paint nicely.




ready for a new coat of paint until i get a setup for spraying professional bake on finishes again.

all parts together ready for mock reassembly to see where i stand on needing replacement parts and whatnot.



need a new forward handguard mount block, i broke this one and possibly a couple other items, but i may end up fabricating them myself, like the front sight, this one is gnarly and i will have to fab up a sight hood for it. I will buy a Mosin 91/30 sight hood for it and mount it on the sight.

Check out how nice the barrel turned out compared to before i started!





putting it back together permanently (or until i get a duracoat spray setup)







mostly put back together now


what she looks like now.




just awaiting new parts like a magazine and sight hood.
sleeping in the safe until then.
Fun little project, only took me a little under a week.

Damn man, you've done an amazing transformation with that gun! The bore of that barrel would be my only concern.

the bore is nearly pristine actually, that and the reciever/action are the only two reasons i even attempted to do anything with it.
just awaiting a magazine for it now and i will terrify some targets soon!

Fantastic work man. Looks like all that work paid off!

Hopefully you didn't have to buy that gun? I'm assuming it was provided to you at no charge?

Wow... just wow. I can't believe anyone could look at that gun how you got it and say "that'll buff out, I can fix it!". I would have thought it was a goner. Damn nice work!

Its getting closer to playtime!
My new magazine is at the UPS depot in Redmond now.

I will get it tomorrow. I will go to the indoor range here in kent possibly tomorrow and test fire it as soon as i can. possibly tomorrow after i get off work.
Hope my boss lets me off early now hehe!

my eyes not being good for peep sights, i may get me a set of tall scope mounts for it in the future or fabricate a mount that will fit atop the handle with a dovetail on it.

this rifle shoots really nice actually!
I was ranged at 50 yards and hitting raw eggs, cans, potatos, whatever i shot at, it has awsome rifling too.
I was surprized how nice it shoots actually.

One thing i did notice is that it HATES oil or wet lubricants in the action. Only a dry powder graphite is suggested.

buy new mags off google: armscor model m1600 mag - Google Product Search

Great job on the gun. I know this is an old thread but here is hoping you still have notifications turned on for updates.

I am going through the same process with the same gun only mine is not as bad as your starting point. Couple questions if you can shed some light.

How did you get the trigger assembly off of the receiver. I have removed the front screw no problem but something else is still holding it on right under the trigger. Because of the springs and screws for the safety I'm trying not to be to explorative and would rather some guidance than vacuuming up small parts.

Also did you ever separate the barrel from the receiver? I like to re-blue metal personally but don't like to do barrels still on the receiver. I have tried a bit of force and mallet but she won't budge. It is just sitting now with some solvent.

Any clues would be appreciated.
