Keeping the patina is critical when working on these rifles, especially when cleaning up so much rust. One was extremely rusted…

I think you will discover why 7.62 Nato Mags topped out at 30 - they need to be curved beyound that for feeding.

Oh yes… customer is hoping he can get 30 and have it β€œreliable”
I was thinking about a curved mag like from a FAL chopping the top and welding the B59 top to it. Customer has to come up with the mags though… I am not cutting up mine! Hahahhaha

Real history here. The Johnson Automatics M-1941 in .30-06 was at one point a contender for the M-1 Garand. This specimen has some repaired stock work, but the metal is in very nice shape. The bore is near perfect. This was a real pleasure to have this rifle come into the shop.

Oh how I love my job

I try to tell people quite often… do NOT skimp on your scope mounts! Know what mount is designed for what scope and what caliber. This is a .338 Lapua and that tiny Nightforce ring set was not doing the job. Barrett to the rescue!

This Beretta 92S is in the shop for some interesting mods. First off, Cerakote. The finish is trashed… so, Cerakote to the rescue.
Second… I converted it to a G model. Now as far as I can tell… this maybe the first 92S to ever be converted to an G model.
I will have photos of it fully assembled tomorrow. It is in the oven as I write.
