Similar to this one, I could use a bit of a trigger tune up too. Really short throw on the lever, which is cool.

Tube fed, I like it! Looks like it has been around the block a time or two, but looks great!

Debating whether or not I want to give the steel a Krylon job. Made in early 60's, has been reworked a bit so no collector value. Most of the bluing is gone.

I kryloned a couple (4) of my guns and they are holding up pretty well. The one that has really held up is my .06 A-bolt. It used to rust just sitting in the gun cabinet. The paint is really sticking to the rougher texture of the barrel. Three hunting seasons later and it looks fine. Now I just have to oil the guts once and a while and not worry about it.

How many coats? Did you use a flat black? It would definitely help the looks of this.

I camo'd all of mine and used several different colors and patterns and probably three to four coats thick plus 4 or 5 coats of the Krylon clear matte finish. The A-bolt pattern was sponged on after putting a good base grey primer coat. Several folks have recommended a self etching primer for a base coat on the metal parts. My model 93 Savage has a stainless barrel and it has some scrapes on it where the paint didn't adhere that well. The 835 and A-bolt only have a few minor scuffs in the paint and they get bounced around quite a bit.
