Restoration

Restoring an old firearm is a meticulous and rewarding process that blends historical preservation with skilled craftsmanship.

 It begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine the firearm’s condition and the extent of wear or damage. Careful disassembly follows, where each part is cleaned to remove rust, dirt, and old lubricants, often using specialized solvents and tools to avoid further damage. Components are then inspected for structural integrity, with worn or damaged parts being repaired or replaced using period-appropriate materials and techniques.
