    Re-barreled and fresh cerekote. The original factory spout was a lousy shooter so I sent it to Douglas Barrels for a new 10 Twist stainless barrel and a blueprinting of the action. After that; I had the metal work cerekoted "Armor Black".

    I put this rifle together for deer and Texas pigs, also My father in law will be using this one on our trip to Zimbabwe next august so I have my fingers crossed that this will tighten things up a bit.

    Thank you. I had Boyd county gun range on Paul Coffee BLVD do it. The are only 15 minutes from my house.

    They did a pretty good job, with it being a hunting gun; I have no complaints.

    Word of caution. The action and controls of the gun will likely not be as smooth as they were prior to the application of the cerekote. At least not at first, it will take some lubricant and working it back and forth many times.

    I wish I could see it. For some reason my system won't let me open it.

    With regard to the cerekote, are there various colors available?
