Thank a veteran.
I had someone give me this old Norinco Type 54 Tokarev. It was covered in bed liner. My friend’s wife had it for years. She asked one day if I would look at it for her. I was floored….. Lol. I said it’s probably not worth the money it would cost for a gunsmith to try to salvage it. She responded with “oh well, you can have it since guns are a hobby of yours “… Nuff said ! I soaked it in acetone for 2 weeks and off I went with a dremel and brass brushes. I stripped it as best I could. The rest was scotch brite pads and polishing. I ordered Cerakote and here we are. I’m new to Cerakote so don’t beat me up to bad.
