The Brownells Checkering Restoration Kit is something new that we’ve put together for you folks who want a complete set-up for doing some recheckering. I’ve worked on picking out the tools for this and thought that this would make a good article on how do cut checkering on your guns.
My trusty Remington 870 has been through a lot here at Brownells since I purchased it. I have disassembled,bead-blasted, cold blued, reassembled, and disassembled again . . . more than any shotgun often goes through in a lifetime of use.
I recently purchased
a Remington 870
at a local gun show. It had been well maintained, but with
every gun that
sees a lot of use, there were some wear marks and
imperfections that detracted
from its appearance.
When Bob Brownell started bluing
guns nearly 65 years ago, there weren’t a lot of options to preserving the
finish other than bluing for most folks.
