    That's how a classic can be brought into the 21st Century as a viable carry gun. It's the kind of 1903/1908 that US Armaments need to start making. Who did this work ? What other work was done ?

    Like the look of the cross hatch on the 1908. Gonna remember, if I ever refinish.

    No, never bought a refinished gun on purpose. Got one by accident once, a New Service that I couldn't tell til I got it home. Have a Winchester 52 that might have been, hard to tell. I stay away from refinished at all costs.
