  • Always liked the combination of brass and walnut on re finished Benjamins

    So I decided to re do mine as a point of difference to the collection as all our guns are blued it makes a real nice contrast with a nicely figured stock.

    After painstakingly removing the nickel-ed blue with Hydrochloric acid, the brass then polished up beautifully with California Custom Purple polish, all the screws, cam plate, bolt etc were polished and blued to highlight the contrast between the brass and blue black.

    I'm very pleased with the end result, it's so different and the warmth of the golden brass is quite complimentary to the colour of the nicely figured stock.

      Excellent job mate, and yes I reckon removing the blue plating would have been a prick.

      Those old Benjamins with the turned pump handle look so much better than the newer Benji/ Sheridan/ Crosmans.
      Gotta love the simplicity of that stamped trigger too!

      0.20 caliber Sheridans were also brass barreled.
