It’s on its way back. It wasn’t pretty when I got it. Someone cut the stock, but luckily the piece survived. She was pretty wore out. But..... I also have #809 and it’s a T too!!

The seam is visible, but it’s a lot better than it was. I tried to blend it as best I could. These pre war traps are incredible guns. Walt pegged it in his book, “King of the Pump Guns”

The checkering on these is just over the top. This one has a 32 inch barrel as well!! I’ve never seen another T with one.

Beautiful job, Matt. Who did the rebluing for you? And I assume that's an oil finish on the wood: what brand?

Matt, I have a couple guns that could come and visit while you are on lock down :)
Beautiful job as always.
I had to edit: are either 808 or 809 single extractor?

Very nice work. I'm super impressed with how well you matched up the two pieces of the previously cut stock. Wish I could find a project Model 37 with that quality of wood.

Sorry Dave, this is the finish. I mix this , some linseed oil, and mineral spirits and brush into checkering. That’s what’s in the cup.

:) ....and no on the shingle!! A lot easier working on your own stuff. Lots of pros out there do a better job than me. But thanks for the kind words.

808 and 809 together. I was lucky enough to get 809 some years ago from Walt. It was already refinished. Not sure who did it, but it was done very well. It actually became my go to trap gun. I get a message a year or so ago from a gentlemen with some really nice 37’s he was looking to part with. He sent me a list and 808 was listed!! I had to do a double take and recheck the serial number on mine. We made a deal and she came back to Upstate NY. I think he said he found in a pawn shop. It was a little worse for wear. I had the metal done and with this crap going on now had some time to get to projects and this was at the top of the list. She’ll be all back together in the next couple days.
