Browning Challenger Before (left) and After (right)
I found an old Belgian Browning Challenger on GunBroker that was in horrible shape. Absolutely no finish anywhere, lots of pitting and signs of prior rust all over.
It was the right price so I took the gamble. Cleaned it up, function checked it, then off to Robar for NP3.
They asked about the pitting and I told them to go ahead and finish it without any major buffing or other pit mitigation. Came back looking great. It’s now one of my primary rimfire shooters.
Oh yeah. My NP3’d Sig P220 that I had done back in the 90’s still looks like it came back from them yesterday.
