« Part 1: The idea stage - First LJ project Part 2 of Stevens 311 restoration series no next part

I will be writing this in sort of walkthrough form; so I will include my resources as they come. I am getting parts from Numrich Arms and the direct page for this gun is here. They have a passable exploded diagram on that page but the one I use comes out of the Gun Digest diagrams book. Same diagram for the most part, though. I have basic tools for the project but when working with firearms, fine or otherwise, I would recommend a good set of gunsmith screwdrivers and punches. These and a basic cleaning kit will serve you in most basic adjustments very well. Specialty tools, like the checkering cutters and things will be picked up when I get to that part of the project.
