I refinished my G1 tonight. Cleaned it up real good (Ricochet had already help me time the barrel on a Hesse stainless) and painted it with Rustoleum High Heat BBQ and Stove. Then I snuck all the parts (except the barreled receiver) in the oven. I got chased around the house with a spatula and a fryin' pan when the wife smelled the fumes. :rolleyes: I put the barreled receiver on the propane grill (wrapped in a towel and then in heavy duty foil). Left it all in for about 1 and 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. Preliminary tests on spare parts indicate a fair resistance to Hoppes #9 and gun oil. Gotta go for now...I have an oven to clean. :D :D :D
