Beautiful engraving, a very clean piece, Geco german guns are very tough and accurate. Stock needs a restoration. Overall a very good gun. :D

Looks like a beauty ! Congrats.... :D
A gun by your side is better than police in the neighbourhood.

People who value privileges above principles, soon lose both.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore...
And who always will....

Congrats Sniper,

That's a good piece. My dad had an SBBL Geco. Do let us know about its performance. I think it needs some bluing. Apart from that it looks great.

Thanks All

Eb.- The bluing is actually in pretty good condition - the snaps do not do justice to the condition of the gun.
I shall take some day time snaps.

What did you use to polish the wood.
generally spirit polish mixed with "laal daana" (75gms to a liter) is the best wood polish which would give a natural effect.

I first removed the old polish, then removed the oil and after fine sand work applied 2 coats of Furniture Polish - LIghthouse or Cat im not too sure - the french one.
before the sanding all the scars were filled in with a mixture of araldite and rosewood dust.
