Restoration

7.62 Precision can restore your well used firearm to better-than new looks. We can remove rust, fill pitting and scratches, and refinish your firearm with a rust-proof finish. Not only will we make it look good, but it will be protected against rust and wear. Have a truck or boat rife? This finish is just what you need!

Colt SP1 restored from unusable condition after years of storage on the water. Parts frozen with rust were replaced and pitted parts restored before a black DuraCoat finish was installed.

BEFORE: A poor attempt at a pink leopard pattern by another finisher left a disappointed owner looking for someone to fix it.

The unfortunate result was more of a pink cow look with big white areas.

We refinished the shotgun in a true pink leopard pattern.

Because we disassemble before finishing, all areas are covered with the pattern - none are left white, and the customer left happy.

  1. Would love to see more “before” pictures of your restorations. How extensive was the damage to the ruger blackhawk?

    • I know – we need to take more before photos – I keep thinking, “Oh, I should have taken pictures before I coated that one!” The Ruger Blackhawk had a lot of finish wear, some surface rust, and some mild pitting on the frame. The ejector housing had some dents, and the trigger guard had serious damage. It was very dented and had very deep gouges where much of the metal had been removed – it looks like it had been battered by something with a sharp corner. The owner bought it for a very good price due to the cosmetic looks, but it was a good, functional revolver. We cleaned it up, filled some of the pitting, and cleaned up the dents quite a bit, especially the mushroomed aluminum on the side of the trigger guard. We did not really do a full restoration on this one, because he wanted to use it as a working gun and did not want to put a bunch of money into cosmetic repairs. I would have done the same – I would use that type of firearm hard and would not be concerned about a few dings. The finish made it look very good, and gave it the rust protection that he wanted. Pitting was gone and the only real cosmetic issue you could see was the remaining gouges on the trigger guard, which are now much less visible. I think you can see the gouges in the photos.
      I just picked up a really rusted old 1972 Winchester 94 with a great bore for pennies. I will be doing a full restoration on that one and posting photos of each step on this website.

      • Thanks. Can’t wait to see the progression of the Winchester restoration. I am considering sending in my father’s old JC Higgins model 66 12 gauge to you all for some restoration work. I know the gun itself is not worth much $, but $ isn’t everything. Seeing the gun restored to how I remember it from my childhood and Dad’s reaction will be quite sufficient.
