I wanted to share my latest project that I have been working on. I acquired a Remington 870P Police Magnum shotgun that needed some restoration. When I first saw the shotgun for sale, I had to look pass the paint job and see the potential. I believe the shotgun was previously used by a correctional facility or police.
When I got the shotgun, I broke it down for inspection and cleaning. The exterior showed a lot of handling, but the inside was clean and looked barely used. It was hard to see any wear in the trigger assembly or down the barrel.
I stripped down the paint with a regular paint stripper. After that was dry, I sanded the wood down and prep it for staining and finishing. I used Tru-Oil for the finish. I also re-blued some of the barrel and receiver.
Although the gun is back to its original state, I still would like to redo the end of the stock. I want to remove the original recoil pad and install a metal butt plate. The shotgun is for home defense and I want a solid stock as a back-up.
As far as the restoration, I replaced the magazine cover with an original one, replaced the spring with a standard Police spring, installed a Wilson Combat Big Safety and a S/S magazine follower. The rest of the gun is original. BTW, it is an 18" barrel with a bead sight, blued metal with gorgeous walnut furniture.

And now the way it originally looked when new.

Looks great. Beats the Leprechaun look.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
It looks great!!

Nice job! I probably would have failed to see the potential and passed up a good deal.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
You got rid of that magnificent High School Gym Locker-Room Green!?!
Seriously...looks mighty fine now. Real nice job on that wood furniture.
Great job. Great find!
