Hey everyone, thought I would share some photos of my Slavia 630 resto project. Almost completed! I just need to do a bit more polishing here and there and some very fine tuning of the spring/piston followed by chronograph testing. It was a pretty fun project for the most part. There was allot hand washing lol. lots of room for tweaking her yet for power, here is a short rundown of its current power capability. Stoegers XSpeed 5.56 pellets were running over the chrono at 660-678 FPS and the heavy SB Diabolo Exact Heavy 10.34 were flying around 550+ FPS. I found this little gem online along with some other airguns for a great deal, the rifle was in very poor condition covered in rust spots all over the barrel and receiver/breech, the insides were bone dry and crude, the gun stock was pretty flaky and scratchy too. The person who sold the rifles told me his grandfather had owned the CZ 630 for quite some time, so I assume its a fairly old version of the Slavia 630. I must mention I find this rifle very accurate and the trigger pull is very predictable and extremely smooth !

And the last of the pics along with the original condition of the rifle and although you cant quite see the rust, its very much on it in that picture, that was/is the online classified picture of it. When I first got it, I shot a 7.3gr Diablo Exact through the chronograph at around 460 FPS, not bad I guess, so its the 495 version, still .. not bad !

Well before I go to bed here is a quick run down

I used a soft brass bench grinder wheel to get the rust and old bluing off first, then start with a 400 grit auto body sand paper then move up to 1000 & 2000 grit, its allot of elbow greese then I use a bench grinder buffing wheel and compound to finnish it up after the sanding. you'll use lots of tiny pieces of sandpaper for the small areas, the tedious part !

No bluing? I mean it seems you removed the bluing in some spots, or is that just the picture? The barrel looks silvery, almost like black chrome. Is that what happens when you buff bluing or is the bluing simply thin?
Details are always helpful since many people want to touch up or re-blue but have zero experience.

Wow, very nice and well worth restoring. I was under the impression that the 630 was a non PAL though.
