    Has anyone done this? Could it be done successfully with a gold enamel paint over the existing finish. I have used the gold paint successfully on a lot of other metal finishes.

    Well it is the nearest to a brass colour unless you can suggest a closer colour to match the Wells Fargo Winchester as in the 1866.;)

    you will need a couple of coats of primer also
    you will need to strip the gun down which is not easy,the barrel etc is a doddle to remove but getting the stock off is a nightmare
    good luck

    That's one of the paints I use along with hammeritae but I have the Wilko equivalent in gold and it's good stuff. I thought the stock would be easy. Isn't it a bolt a screw and a good tug??

    to be honest i can't remember,ages ago i did mine
    i dont recall it being that simple,don't forget the co2 canister/s fit in the stock so you need to be careful when pulling the stock off not to damage anything that carries the co2 to the valve in the action

    Removing the stock is easy. Inside the hollow stock you wll see a brass probe with a 10mm ( socket size) brass nut around it. Remove this nut with a 10mm socket and extension. Then remove the one screw which goes through the wrist strap ( top of wrist of stock). Then just pull the stock off.
