i bought a Polish Underfolder kit from Sportsmans Guide which is a total POS. the finish quality is like 50%...the bore is actually pretty nice.

i'm going to build it without refinishing everything. just want to get the reciever to have that worn finish look.

any tips on how to do this..the barrel is almost a black semi-gloss

thanks moose

Blue it, then rub it with steel wool until you get the amout of wear you want.

What brand of receiver are you using??
What is the finish like on the UF kit??
My worn Romy build matches an unfinished GT receiver very well
for a battlefield pickup look rifle.

Try some cold blue also.

Park, paint, bake, then scrub that mofo like your life depends on it with a green kitchen pad. Pay extra attention to the corners and high spots. Mine turned out GREAT like this. Damn it makes your arm tired, though.

That's what I'm looking to do with my UF kit. The finish looks like a used surplus rifle :shock: Not a POS, mechanically sound, bore in good shape, headspace right. For $200.00 I'm satisfied.

as for the kit...it's on it's way back to SG...couldn't see forking out the $$$ for a poor quality kit.
