A little custom touch

 I didn't like the plain, unpolished stainless extractor, and I think this looks fantastic.  Eddie Fosnaugh cerakoted the extractor on my faux Winchester M70 Sporter Deluxe.  It's just a minor detail, but no sense in living with something I didn't like the looks of.  As a side benefit, it seems to help functionality too, as the bolt runs a little smoother than it had before.

I'm really happy with this little touch, and figured I'd show it off and provide a public thank you to Eddie for the fast turn around and great work.

Beautiful looking rifle!!

Beautiful looking rifle!! that last picture shows it the best but it's still a little hard to see from that far back. Any chance of a close up to get a better look?

Is this local work or did you have to send it off as I'm not familiar with the name.

Much better view. I like it, and anything custom helps set the rifle apart as one of a kind. I'll go check out his site.

The extractors on the Winchester M70 CRF used to come standard with a black teflon coating on it, mine has it.
