I am restoring a 1926 NID 16 gauge. I am doing all the work except I do not have my CCH set up done yet. So, I am thinking about having someone else do the CCH to the receiver for me.

Who would you recommend that can do as close to original early NID CCH? I like the yellows and straws I see on nive NIDs more so than the blues and grays of other guns.

It is a star model field grade with no pitting so pretty straight forward job I would think.

Thanks

Travis

I bought the first NID .410-bore I found that had a full 14-inch length-of-pull. It was pretty well worn, so I had it redone by Doug Turnbull. It looks very nice, but is a bit too shiny --

High condition original guns are a bit more "frosty." These pictures of a high original condition early Field Grade 20-gauge were originally posted by Walter on Shotgunworld.com --

It would be a matter of how much of the work you are willing to do; I'm not set up to CCH but have sent disassembled parts--receivers and all the smaller parts--out to be done. If that is what you are looking for, let me know. Gil

To be correct--double guns do not have receivers--they "receive" nothing--they have FRAMES. Gunter Pfrommer uses a source in New England, Connecticut I thunk, who does a pretty good job of duplication Ithaca colors.

Well if I am going to be corrected I am proud to be done so by the man himself.

Thanks and duly noted.

BTW when can we expect a reprint? Please please please

Dave, I assume you mean by "too shiny" the gloss on the wood finish. FWIW, I have a 16 Philly Fox AE 30" that came to me with the wood refinished, and very glossy. I spent some time asking how to best knock back that shine. I ended up doing it myself successfully with Birchwood Casey Stock Sheen and Conditioner. I was a bit surprised at how easy it was to use, very controllable to cut the shine black to whatever level you want.

Good luck with the CCH, Travis. Plz show us the before and after pics.
