Now it's coming back to me, that's the picture that caused me to do Rigby Flats on one of my builds...

I'm quite sure it's not the lighting. That barrel is scalloped ever so slightly to meet the receiver isn't it? Like those Rigby flats too.

Good eye, Jerry! I enlarged the photo and there is an impossible delicate tulip on the barrel that would cut your fingers getting it buffed for bluing.
Great job, Greg!

Yes it is, I got lucky on what was the tulip transition and managed to make it blend.

I am constantly amazed at the talent some of you fellows have. We can till admire the "Old Masters" but we  have their equals amongst us.

Fortunate for me I rarely buff a barrel. I take it out to 400 grit paper and rust blue.  This barrel does have a very sharp edge at that point, almost enough to shave with...

Good enough that I thought the barrel & receiver are one piece. Wink
As said many times here............... the work of some of you folks (like GT & others) is amazing.
