RE-BLUING

Postby DuncaninFrance » Mon Jul 15, 2013 4:50 am

My pal decided he wanted to re-blue the barrel and breech on his TOZ-78 04M so I bought a kit for him from the UK ( can't buy them here )

I set up a bit of kit to allow him to wash the barrel and thought it might be interesting to see.

The results are not 100% ( as I suspected they would be ) but hey, it's his gun :cool: :cool:

While putting the rifle back together we have discovered a problem...................
There is a small spring that fell out when the trigger unit was unscrewed from the breech and we can't see exactly how it fits into the unit :oops:
Although the rifle is very accurate the trigger unit is poorly made :shock:
Anyone got any ideas :roll: :roll: :roll:
