Here is a my "new" camera. Stripped off the old stain and refinished it. Hours and hours of steel wool work to get the brass back into shape. Shot a few plates earlier and it seems to work like a charm.

Thanks! It took up a full semester's worth of work in grad school. Here's hoping it will help me finish my last semester in the next few months!
