.410 Investarm 100L uplift


Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I picked this .410 up a few months back, 30 mins after picking it up, and putting a snap cap in it, it snapped a firing pin. So sadly, it instantly left a bad taste in my mouth. (I didn’t know that firing pins could go just like light bulbs and were easily replaced. I wasn’t a fan of the folding element, and the fact it was a tad difficult to cock. (The top lever rotates to 90 degrees to cock the hammers back).

Plus, when I went to part Ex it, the dealer really low balled me and offered £40!


So it just sat at the back of the cabinet unloved and un-shot. I got it out the other day, and thought that it would be a good base to do a little mini over haul.

 I have since loved .410’s so am going to take it apart, re do the wood using Tru Oil and also I have a few ideas to ‘Jazz’ it up.

Pics to follow soon if anyone is interested!

Just a little update, I found a lovley blue I like, and I fancied doing this just to make it stand out a little bit.

Some will like it, many will hate it.

I like it!
