I would love to build with this pair. Hopefully I can find the maker


#1


#2

Probably aqua dipped.


#3

I guess it’s called color case hardening… Using charcoal made from animal bones.
Ugh…


#4

You can do it! No problem.


#5

I just need a kiln :thinking:


#6

CDNN had those on sale a month or so ago, they are case hardened 8620 steel. They were somewhere in the 2500.00 range.


#7

Yes thanks, I found the whole rifle for $2500… On sale from $4999!
I think I may just have to get creative, and try to figure something out. I really love that look!


#8

You would have machine from billet, taking outside to finished dimensions, leaving the rest solid, heat treat, then machine internals. A lot of work, I can see why they were 5K
