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.
Now that the stain job has dried properly, it’s time for the
fun part -
applying the finish. This is the most rewarding part of the job to
me, and is
when you see the results of all your hard work.
Last month I wrote about stripping the old finish off of a stock and
getting it ready for refinishing. Well, we have this perfectly sanded
stock and now the question is, what are we going to do with it™
It was a really tough hunting season, and your poor gun took
quite a beating!
Look at those dings and scratches in the stock.
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.
Stock refinishing is a very common job for many shops, but
we’ve seen that some gunsmiths leave the checkering “as is”
rather than re-cutting it.
Many of our customers call us and say
“I can’t get my gunstock finishes to come out looking right. What am I doing
wrong”™ Probably nothing.
