    Cliffs:

    - Flooded Basement
    - Not cleaned in 10 years
    - Christmas present for our pastor who happens to be a US Army Vet.

    Completely stripped. Salvaged most parts - most replacements were just pins.

    Not pictured: Have a fiber optic front sight and some Hogue wrap-around grips coming as a surprise.

    Duracoat Matte Black (bit heavy on hardener for some extra sheen)

    Now for some comparison...

    That seemed to clean up pretty nicely.

    Thank you. This was the hardest one I've done to date that did not absolutely require a machine to patch up.
