Rifle Restoration Projects

Recommended Posts

After a recent show of homedone restoration projects i thought they all should be put together in one thread.
Some of the links below will show you what can be acheived with a bit of TLC, paitence and 120 grit.
Everybodys welcome to put up a thread and if you can be as informative as possible in regards to the methods, products ,suppliers, prices etc.

Some class work and big respect lads :thumbs:

so my 95 fell through and got a Diana\milbro G80 for postage off Johnie Bravo....


absolute peach I am having major trouble loading pictures on here :( am well happy!!


sorted out a bit of trigger wobble with a washer, sanded down and oiled the stock.. it does need reblueing!!


full internal overhaul, spring was fine but everything got a good deburr and regreasing (was like glue inside) added a plastic spring sleve to reduce noise (its fricking quiet anyway)and now am getting standing 20p groups and 30yrds with HTT power copper coated and 10p groups with jsb's and bisley magnums (well surprised with the magnums)


too say I am addicted is an understatement.. a few days work (is it work if your enjoying it this much????) and a rifle that cocked like a crisp packet with 3" groups at 30 yards is now hitting the kill zone with very little effort or noise.. not as powerful or accurate as my 77 but this rifle will have its place, its light.. short and accurate.. what more could you want!!


if someone could help me regards to the pictures I would appreciate it!!


Atb (a very happy indeed) Ade
