Restoring filed stampings?

I know there is a way of doing this. I just won a Carcano off of proxibid and it turned out the serial number, maker, and date were filed off the barrel shank by the importer long ago. What is a good way to raise these numbers? Anyone ever do it?

Re: GEW 88/05 Issue.....

It is not a crack. It is a seam from the conversion process. Basically a small sheet of steel was used to fill in the slot where the original enbloc clip would go. Well that is sounding better, so do you even think a repair is needed..??? I looked at a couple Turks and did not see any seams like th...

Re: M38 receivers

All receivers should be the same with the exception of the 8mm modified ones. I do mean all of them, from the m1891 all the way to end of production.

Re: Interesting bandoleer find.

Got this on eBay. It was originally a M1889 bodeo bandoleer that was converted later on to use with the Beretta semi automatics. Still looking for a M1889 pattern. So how does the ammo fit in there.. Looks like it would hold 6 or so rounds in each pocket side by side or a magazine laying flat????? ...

A very nice addition to your collection. How is the bore?
Was crusty when I just looked at it. Ran a brush through it and it is a near mirror.
