Another month, another refinished gun. This one is a Mossberg model 380 semi-auto .22 rifle. Someone had spilled or exposed the rifle to a chemical that caused some localized corrosion.
Anyway, I removed the pits and polished the metal before rebluing it via the hot salts method.

Another one, this one is a Remington 512 Sportmaster (the second one I have done). It wasn't in too bad of shape, the stock needed some cleaning up. Then I polished and reblued most of the steel parts

I have another one! This is a Smith & Wesson model 27 from the early 70's, some previous owner engraved their driver's license number on the gun, in two places....it also had some holster wear and mild rust pitting...I removed the graffiti and polished it up, then reblued it.

VERY nice work !!
I miss blueing and restoring antique arms more than any other aspect of gunsmithing

Some of my old business cards....notice "Antique, Classic, and Obsolete Arms"

I bought this Ruger Standard pistol at a gun show for $80, it was missing some parts and in need of a refinish.

What parts were missing? Sounds like quite a steal.
