That other thread failed miserably and if you try to spam or flame here, I will break your arms.

It is super easy, a 10 second job to remove it, open the little hatch on the back of the receiver and push the ring inside with a pen or so.

Now, I recently learned that the local gunsmith no longer does hot-bluing, and cold-bluing the whole gun is inadvisable, as the finish probably wouldn't be as high quality as we'd like. However, there is another gunsmith 100 km away that would do it for 78€ with prepwork done by us, or around 130€ with them doing the prepwork as well as 58€/hr work fee. So, judging by the look, would you guys recommend doing it or just do a light touchup, removing the rust and then put a light surface oil coat to keep the patina?

The end result comparison would be quite close to this:



Edit: I now have the parts necessary to repair the gun.

Sitrep:





More work needs to be done on the receiver and the barrel, sandblasting equipment being on the to-buy list. A new front sight is on it's way. The stock needs to be refitted to the receiver, probably with Acraglas to remove play.

The "naked" rifle
AFAIK it's a shotgun, the Browning Auto-5

It's the British engineer's weapon in the Secret Weapons of WW2 expansion for BF42

It's done:



And a bonus family photo:

Top to bottom:
Remington 700 SPS in .308 Winchester. The barrel channel in the stock has been ground open and the stock bedded to make it a free floater, and another sling swivel attach point added to the front.
FN/Browning Auto-5 from 1931.
Valmet 112 12-gauge O/U shotgun from the 70's or 80's. My first shotgun, and it used to belong to my dad. The stock has been shortened by 10 cm, then added back(you can barely see the line where it's put together, just behind of the rear sling swivel), and the comb raised by 7mm. The bottom barrel was burst at the muzzle, and that's why it has been shortened.
TOZ model 17 .22LR
Savage Stevens model 89 .22LR single shot.


BTW, if you have a Boresnake, how do you usually clean it?
