1971 Wingmaster /Total Restoration

Picked up a 870 wingmaster 12ga. not to long ago, it came with a parkerized vented rib barrel for an express model 870. The shotgun also came with a fair amount of rust, pits, and water damage. I wont lie, it looked like the owner was drowning ducks bolt side down on their early morning hunts. But I cleaned her up, broke it down, stripped all the bluing, and slicked out the parkerized barrel. Even made a little video on my work. Enjoy!

Nice work I never knew you can use a denim wheel to buff out sanding marks...

It will knock out the sanding marks from 0000 steel wool. The wool does a great job at buffing out the 1500grit paper marks and the denim wheel blended it in. But it was a long process... With a palm sander it went from 120 grit paper to 220, to 320, to 400, to 600, to 800grit. Then I wrapped some 1000 grit paper around a sponge and vigorously hand sanded the metal, changing to 1500 grit then the steel wool. The metal was a grayish color at that point with very fine lines showing. That is what the denim wheel buffed out. Thanks for watching!
