I don't know why but I have a thing for old working man's shotguns. Kind of like my wife loves purses I guess, I don't need anymore but they keep following me home. I saw this old unloved rust bucket at my LGS, a Stevens 820B. The barrel stamp showed it to be from 1950, the furniture was nice, and the $80 dollar price tag was perfect for a project gun.
I stripped the rust with Evaporust and it worked better than I thought it would.
A lot of steel wool and scotch-brite followed with some of Brownell's Oxpho-blue and it does look much better, not perfect but for a first time resto I am pleased.
