Working on the display case.
Lining will be red silk.
What else could it be ?

You are going to gild the oil can, aren't you? Or something to keep it from looking like it was misplaced from the tool roll of a truck?

Hahahahaha. I am not sure. Still conjuring on the effect. I have considered removing the OD paint and leaving the grey finish which will match the French grayed sections on the gun.

Do you know where I could get some Chinese Headstamp 7.65 cartridges?

There's a guy on an AK forum that I frequent that is parting out a pretty extensive Chinese oil bottle collection.
I picked up a few pieces for my budding collection, but there are some nice uncommon pieces for the taking.
I can send you a link, or put you in contact with the seller if you'd like to get something that would be as unique as your project.

Beautiful work, by the way. Outstanding craftsmanship.

The finish won't be uniform. Removing the paint is simply going to expose the soldered joints.

Anyhow that can is just 'way too big, disproportionate to a small pistol.

It's been some years since ammo was imported from Norinco; I don't recall ever seeing 7.65mm. I do recall that a lot of guns were blown up with their 9mm Para.

This is what the case looks like right now.

The bronze thing is a hand cannon which was the original carry pistol invented by the Chinese. There is one engraved in gold on the trigger guard

This what the grips look like with the patina applied.

Gonna get it all blued Monday. Leaving for Vegas for the antique arms show on Wednesday.

The reason the trigger guard is blued and the rest of it isn't is because, as Olle mentioned some threads back, when you weld up pits or orther missing areas to the native metal, you do sometimes get ghosting. There are ways to minimize this occurrence, and because there was several spots requiring welding on the trigger guard to make it look nice, we got it blued some months ago to see if any ghosting occurred.
It did not.
