    So, as you can probably see from some of the pictures, there's not much blueing left on this rifle. I'm looking for opinions on how you might go about refinishing the metal parts.

    Option #1 - Leave it alone
    Option #2 - Cerakote/Durakote (if so, got any suggestions on color?)
    Option #3 - Re-blue

    Thanks, Brent

    Yeah, I can't leave well enough alone sometimes. I probably won't do it. Didn't like the idea of spending almost as much for a refinish as I paid for the gun.

    Going to try something new on the iron sights. Installed a Williams rear peep and a KNS replacement front post.
