Finished it today:
I got my XCR back from Waylon today and it is incredible. I couldn't be happier. The pictures seem to cast the gray with a slight blue hue, but not so in person. Awesome job and Thank You!
Any chance you could give us some links to those tutorials or tell us the best keywords to use in searching for them? That's about the most beautiful gun I've ever seen by the way!Yes, that's 10/22 is pure evil! LOL
The XCR took about 6 hours, including all the prep work of masking, degreasing, disassembly, reassembly, etc...
If you're thinking of doing it yourself, there are several good tutorials online and I'd be glad to help with any questions as well.
