Winchester Wingmaster 870 refinish

1970 model here... was in pretty poor condition. The owner wanted to change it up, I recommended a darker color. Went to a dark walnut stain, redwood strain on grips, and did black accents on the checkering.

Came out pretty good, definitely does this great shotgun justice.






I didn't reblue the gun, but it needed it.

I hoping that's the case.

I try to pickup broken/damaged weapons often and fix/restore them. But recently that hasn't been a very enterprising business, considering gun salesman of the year obama.

How much for a job like that? I've got a '75 wingmaster that's getting a little rough.

Can I get some trade secrets?

I have two questions: 1) How are you removing the stock finish? Are you sanding it all off, using a chemical, or both? 2) For the new finish are using a stain and then a polyurethane or are you using a polyurethane stain?

I have a cheap O/U that works like a champ, but the fit and finish isn't great. Luckily there is plenty of wood. I'm considering stripping it down, sanding down the excess wood to make it flush with the metal parts, and then refinishing. The blueing isn't great, but better than I can do.

What do you charge for this kind of stuff?

I have a single shot 410 I am working on right now. I already stripped all the metal and re-blued it. Looks pretty good. I'm started on the wood and stained the forearm and it came out nice but I somehow fucked it up when I sprayed it with polyurethane. Now I'm re-sanding it.
I wish I would have taken some before pics.

About $100 bucks to redo wood if I'm doing a polished finish. Less if it's resurface, then stain or oiling - no fine glass like coating. To get it to look right it takes many, many hours of work.

Heres a previous post about the process:

Thanks, I'll keep that thread as a reference.

What do you do to get the finish off the checkering without sanding the checkering off? My shotty has checkering similar to the one in this thread and I would need to get the finish off it too before I could restain.

it's very tricky, mask it off first, do your heavy sanding, then do a few light passes with higher grain on the checkering. OR just plow through it and rechecker later.
