10/22 elegant? Yep....read on

I was able to purchase a few of the left over steel 10/22 receivers from the failed Kingston Armory. They were building M1 & M1A tribute rifles using a 10/22 action as the basis for the rifle. They had some 10/22 receiver copies cast in steel and then machined.
Anyway since I blue guns I decided to buy some of the receivers "in the white" (bare steel) and give them a high polish blue. I polished the receiver to a 5000 grit finish. Then I took one of my extra new-take-off barrels and give it the same high polish blue job. Then I bought a new anodized aluminum trigger housing from Pike Arms and a new walnut International stock (factory Ruger) from S&P Outfitters.

This is the result











Here are my blog posts showing the process

Nice work! Don’t much care for the full length stock but you did a great job!
