Aged the brass. All that is needed for that is a quick wipe or two with Birchwood Casey Blue or Super Blue, stop the action with water, oil, let it set 24 hours to firm up.

Also knocked the sporting house gloss off the grip wood with a brillo pad then buffed it back up to a satin gloss with fff compound. More than for looks, this takes out the spray bumps and slicks the grip up a bit. If it was better wood, not just stained birch, I'd take all the finish off and force in urethane buffed back to the surface of the wood and final topped with wax. But its just run of the mil wood.....so....

More to follow soon.
