He just refinished my stock on my 2000. I had dropped it into some gravel which acted particularly evil on the wood on the gun. It was a self-inflicted wound (I am infamous for doing these things to my guns) and Mark made it better than new.

He's done a lot of work for Ann and me , making adjustable combs and other stuff (on P-guns , Brownings etc).

Sera, how long did the refinish take? I'm talking with a guy who does excellent work, but he said plan on being without the gun for 2 months.

There is no rushing the curing of a finish. Extra time in process is much better than having to do it over because it hadn't cured enough. Happens too many times.

Curly is 100% right.

I'd say about 10 or 11 weeks.

I have two 28g Perazzis. One I did the same thing to the stock. I will be sending him that one soon.

It's always good to have a back-up gun.

Thanks for the replies good to know. I may take it in around December, not much shooting going on up North Dec-Feb.
