This Ruger Mark II was was purchased by us as a clapped out wreck at a gunshow. It was pitted, dinged up, scratched, and just looked awful. We felt it would be a good refinishing candidate. The pitting and scratches were polished out. The receiver and barrel were rust browned and the bolt and controls were rust blued. A new Hogue grip and a trigger from Majestic Arms were added to complete the project. The pics below don't do justice - neither the three "before" pics nor the two "after" pics, but we never claimed to be great photographers. This pistol is on display in our shop - Stop by and see it.
