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.

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.
