Well I’m finally getting to rebuild, polish, and re-blue my 1953 Marlin 30-30 336.This project has been literally scattered all over in my toolbox and in my polishing box. I refinished the stock 10 years ago. It’s just been in parts forever, like maybe 9 years.. I know, that’s pathetic.
Anyway it’s been a lot of fun there was a lot of rust on it at the barrel tip. Apparently this sat on the barrel’s tip in a wet area or a place that got wet I can’t remember where it was at and sat there for like 2 months and got pretty rusty and I finally took it apart to stop the rust then put some oil on it and just kind of shoved it into the corner of my stuff hoping I’d get it finished one day.
Nothing really exciting on this other than I realized I need a new set of gunsmith tools Like some nice screwdrivers.
I used the Birchwood Casey Super Blue.
This wasn’t a perfect job by all means but it did stop or should stop the rust.
Really all blueing is an actual corrosion.
Got it all oiled and I ordered a hammer extender.
This baby is 73 years old. I’ve had it for 1/2 that.
Great video of 30-30
