I think instead of selling my 11-87 I'm gonna do this to it!!! I will ask, I have pitting in the barrel, this is an all black shotgun, how much do I need to sand? Until I can see NO pitting whatsoever?
Also, are you spraying the trigger and if so, do I need to worry about any spray paint or finish getting into the trigger assembly/safety?
I noticed the tip of the first gun had tape around it, did you do that separate from everything else?
The prep work ( sanding, taping etc ) normally takes 5 to 6 hours. But I`m anal retentive and want thing perfect, so give or take a bit. As for the pitting in the barrel, as long as there is no rust you will be good just scuffing it up. All rust must be removed! I do spray the trigger gaurd and the trigger assy itself. And then I do add a reed here and there on it. Just make sure to tape as much area off as possible. On the safety, I apply grease to the working area of the saety, that way you can wipe the grease and the paint off when your done.
