    Some of you may know me, I am a amateur gunsmith (student really) and have restored/refinished dozens of firearms.

    I currently have two Mossbergs on my bench, both .22 semi-autos

    The first one I just finished, it is a Mossberg 380 model

    These are the before pictures, I'll post the finished pics later with links to my blog

    The second one is a New Haven model 250C, again these are the before pictures

    Feel free to post pics of the process. Always interested in seeing how people tackle projects like these. Many of us here have performed makeovers and restorations.

    Yeah, you're going to be limited to sanding well into the pitted area. Only so many ways to remove rusty pits. Hopefully, the inside doesn't look as bad as the outside, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Looking forward to how they turn out.

    you'd be surprised, one thing I have learned about .22 rifles, when they are neglected on the outside, they often have lead fouled bores, which tend to protect the steel from rust.
