    So lastyear I refinished my buddies Glenfield 75C .22LR for him on the "CHEAP.
    It had a lot of wear, ect.

    The stock didnt turn out as well as Id liked, but he was happy.

    I blasted the entire action, barrel & mag tube (as one piece, normally I remove the barrel).

    Blasted the front sight hood & rear sight.
    All screws & trigger guard, little stuff, ect...ect...
    Then I "slow rust" blued the barrel & mag tube (Laural Mountain plumb brown) in my sweat cabinet in a "matte blue".

    Duracoated the receiver, front sight hood, rear sight, trigger guard, barrel band ect... ect...

    Then he calls me last week that it was jamming BAD & when trying to chamber a round it would hit the breechface (I explained it was the "dreaded" Marlin feedthroat problem).
    He said he would like to just sell it instead of putting anymore money in it.

    How much?

    I put an even older action assembly I had in an old parts gun Marlin Mod 60 (ejector built in, not the spring type) & VOILA!

    Not a single issue with 100 rounds thru it.
    Its a mini-machine gun now!
    There are some shadows on the rifle as you can see on the ground.
    Definitely a unique vintage Glenfield 75C tho...

    When he brought it to me lastyear:

    He wanted "Unique".

    I stripped the stock & washed with Muriatic acid.

    Set in the sun & pre-stained & stained it with Walnut stain & finished with 2 coats of polyurethane.
