When testing the Luger the first time round I found a few issues with certain features. The barrel’s paint job wasn’t ideal, I just did a quick spray job to make it usable at the time. I could have re-done it with several coats and lacquer but decided instead that Oil finishing was the way to go. I cleaned the barrel, heated the piece and dropped it in the oil tank.
(If you want to see how oil finishing works, you can check out this article here).
Also, the single screw holding the rear sight came loose under recoil after about half a day’s play so I added a second screw and loctite to keep it tight and in place.
A second day’s testing and it’s ready to have the finishing touches added!
A few last bits of paint…
Finished photographs to follow soon.
