Squirrel Terminator

The gun started out as a stock blued barrel metal trigger group 10/22 I added a thumbhole stock & factory stainless barrel and then I bead blasted everything.

Nice! I can tell you've put a lot of work into it.

But I half expected to see this.

Now that there is funny, I don't care who you are!

May need to take that beauty to DC. I hear there are plenty of squirrels there.

What was your bead blasting process? I'm thinking about doing my SP101 with some Harbor Freight supplies.

My neighbor has a 48" professional blast cabinet and I can use it whenever I want, put stuff in and blast away.
I'm also thinking about doing my SP but may do a little carry melt treatment first.

Did you put anything on the receiver after removing the finish to protect it?

I use a product called Renaissance wax and have been using it for a few years now. I use it on just about everything, wood, metal, leather it is one of the best products out there for protecting metals and other products, it's used at the NRA Museum & Smithsonian Institute.

Renaissance Wax was originally formulated in the British Museum research laboratories in the early 1950s.

With this impressive list of places that trust and use it theres not much more to say.

RENAISSANCE WAX is used in the following places in the U.S. - The 911 Monument at ground zero, The Smithsonian Institute, Colonial Williamsburg Conservatory, Abraham Lincoln Residence, Vicksburg Military Park and Museum, Henry Ford Museum, Academy of Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NRA Museum, Rockefeller Restorations, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Hilton Hotels, BYU Museum of Art, National Ornamental Metals Museum, as well as other museums, government agencies, craftsmen, collectors both professional and amature alike.

In the United Kingdom it is used in the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Buckingham Palace, Military Museums at Aldershot, H.M. the Queens Royal Armourer, The National Museum of Antiquities - Scotland, Royal Armories (London & Leeds), The Imperial War Museum, Windsor Castle, and The Tower of London.

Thanks, I have a blued 10/22 (Charger) that I polished down to bare aluminum but was wondering how to protect it.

It's not cheap but goes a long way and has worked extremely well on everything I've put it on.
