Looks pretty good. What did you do to refinish the barrel and the receiver?
I am currently restoring a 24 s-e. I completed the stock and forearm, sanded stained and urithaned them. Looks mint. I also replaced the trigger spring and hammer.
The last thing I want to do it re finish the barrel and receiver and haven't decided on how I want to do it. I just tried the brownell's aluma hyde2 on a cheap .22 I have and it came out great. The .22 has an aluminum receiver so I wasn't able to blue it. I'm not sure what the savage 24 s-e is even made of.
Nice job! My old 24 receiver needs refinished, The barrel bluining is nice, but the receiver bluing is poor. The rolled markings and the serial number are very shallow. I've resisted refinishing it... more
I used Gunkote from Midway Gloss black. I glass beaded the receiver and polished the barrel. If you are going to try it, buy the K-Phos primer, it makes a difference. I have done 7 firearms with this ... more
