Open to ideas on "re-blue" of alloy frame/cylinder. The Courier was Colts' only mass-produced revolver with alloy cylinder. (Air Crewman wasn't mass produced.)A nice reblue and some new stocks which are readily available for around $60-75 should fix it right up.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try that next time. Used Minwax Olde Maple poly on this set.I think you did a very credible job on the recheckering of the stocks. May I suggest next time you restore Colt stocks you use a dark or medium/dark Walnut stain? They will come out matte, which is how they should appear from the factory.
The frame is refinished with Duracoat. Two part lacquer from Lauer. Thought their gloss black was too glossy, but semi-gloss was too flat. Tried 50/50 since I had both on hand. I think that 75 gloss /25 HK semi-gloss may have been a better choice, but once Duracoat sets up, its tough to remove.Pardon my ignorance, but what did you use on the frame. The revolver looks very nice. The stocks look very nice, wish I could do that!!
