Thread: Just might !

    Just might !

    While I was in the Philippines I saw something on Gunbroker I liked and may do to one of my old 444's !

    I at the moment have two of the old style 444's that have been redone so color casing one would not hurt the value any .
    My Retro 444P and a 1967 rifle have both been reblued and had the wood refinished . I'm thinking the 1967 rifle would be the better choice since I grab it a bit less then the short one and then I wouldn't wear the CC off as quick !
    Am also thinking a modest checkering pattern on the stock and forend would also be in order !
    Gun oughtta look pretty decent with the action , lever and both barrel bands CC'd and the wood checkered .
    Here's the 1967 rifle after reblue and refinish . I think it's an acceptable candidate !

    The Retro 444P looks okay as is now I believe .

    I think I can get the CC work done for about $150 and the checkering for another $150 .

    Colour case does look good. sadly here it costs and arm and a leg. Norman Clark has done it in the past but he ain't cheap for anything.

    The cost of $150 to do the four pieces I wish to do is dealer cost . We have a fellow tha does rather good work for us and it's his only line of work .
    We also have another guy that does the checkering for us and $150 for him to checker the stock and forend is him doing me a favor .

    Typically if someone came in the shop with a similar rifle and wanted the same things done that I do the color case would cost them about $250 and the checkering would be about $300 . IF the person were a good customer it might or might not be a bit less .
