    lyman GPR build/rebuild

    I have a Lyman GPR I picked up years ago off gunbroker, and it's a sad looking gun. It's a kit someone "finished", sort of. The barrel and iron parts are finished in cold blue and the stock looked like he simply dumped tru-oil on it. Worst of all, he managed to bend/break two of the wedge...

    Hat Blanks?
