Relining   Remington  Rolling-block

While the term "repair" stands for a process of returning to  
the gun some of its lost functionality,  the term "restoration"  stands
for  a process of providing the gun with authenticity.

It means that after making new parts instead of lost or broken
ones, these parts have to be aged in order to look as if they
were aging with the rest of the gun.

After restoring guns since 1967 for museums and private collectors
we have developed a number of techniques for making the
gun both functional and authentic.
