Ordered one of these off the web, didn't know it had no fuse so I had to buy that off gun broker for 3 times what they had been selling for. The wood had a little mold on it when I got it and the metal had some corrosion. I cleaned the wood with bleach and water, light sanded it and then coated it with true oil from a gun stock refinish kit I had, I unscrewed the top cleaned it and painted it black, it came out nice. I might paint the rest of the metal at some point but I can't decide on a color.
