Glenfield Marlin 25 .22 cal

a few months ago i refinished my 22 rifle that belonged to my cousin while i grew up.
He owed my dad money and left him the rifle.
dad gqave it to me a few years ago and i always got embarassed to take it anywhere.
then i actually did the Izzy range next to the highschool.

Tha lady working the range slobbered over it in its ugly stages of life.

heres what i did to it.

it started when i refinished the green rifle. i did a family photo session of my 22 cal rifles..

i couldnt stomach looking at the scratches anylonger so i tore into it. i sanded lightly all the ugly finish work Marlin used at the factory, i left all the wear & tear on the rifle like scratches and bumps. i hung the stock up, rubbed in some Danish oil & let the 6 coats dry completely. then started spreading thinned out Verathane on it for about 15 coats then three heavy thick unthinned natural coats and let it sit (hang) 48 hours

took it into the living room to dry at higher temps while too cold in the back room.
Plus i could stare at it while surfing the net. (NO! my wifes Brownie camera isnt for sale.)

after slight foldling by none other than me. i played with the camera.

i put it together shortly afterwards because i wanted him whole again.

before & after pic

now i have a slightly larger scope on it for target shooting & Varmints.

you should check out tung oil too if your gonna refinish lots of guns, I used some on my cetme and it made a big difference and was easy to apply.
