Default Model 29 wood presentation box question

Hi Everyone. The blue fuzzy flocking that was sprayed on the plastic molded tray in the wooden presentation case my Model 29 came in has all worn off. I draped a piece of blue satin cloth over it, but I would like to restore this to the way it was. Does anyone know of a blue spray on flocking I could use to restore it? I am also concerned, as I don't want a spray on product that will damage the finish of the. gun. Thanks for reading.

Personally, I think the blue satin you substituted looks better than the flocking. Since the re-flocked interior won't truly be original, why not keep the satin ? You can use a spray adhesive like 3M to fix it in place.

I was told by an old gunsmith not to store the gun in the presentation box, but to keep it in one of those silicone impregnated gun socks. Doesn't make much sense, though, to have a nice fitted box for a nice gun, and then not use it. That said, my nickel M29-2's finish was really nasty from spending ???? time in its presentation case, so maybe there's something to it. My thoughts are to take the thing out and wipe it down and buff it occasionally, even if or especially if you're not shooting it, and keep the case in a moisture-controlled environment.

Beautiful gun, what dash is it, and is that an 8-3/8" barrel?

Below is a picture showing what you will need. Royal blue is the color of the flocking and for the can of adhesive. You will also want the flock it tube to sprinkle the flock on after you have applied the adhesive. It is a simple task. Put it o heavy and then after it dries overnight, using a light brush, dust the excess off.

Another picture with the adhesive applied prior to applying the flocking powder/flakes. The tube is two pieces with holes on one end. The powder comes out of as you work the two piece tube together to blow the powder out onto the adhesive.

I saw a video a while back of a girl reflocking one. It came out good! Here’s the video How to Reflock a Presentation Gun Case - YouTube

Thanks, "Hair Trigger". I think you are right. I have a 4" Model 57 that came in one of these presentation cases. The blue flocking came off and got impregnated into the grips. I got about 98% of it off, but there is still some buried in the cracks and pores of the wood. So after that, I never stored them in the presentation box. I just use those presentation boxes now for showing off. Ha, ha. Reference the Model 29, mine is a 29-3 in 8 3/8". Thanks again.

Thanks Lamarw. That is what I was looking for. Still a little scared to try, but figure if I screw up, and it all goes south on me, I can always put the sating cloth back over it.

Rich, that is spot on. Thanks. I looked around on the Internet for a video, but didn't see one specific for these gun boxes. This one is perfect. Thanks.

Thanks everyone. I just ordered my flocking kit. I'm going to take a shot at it myself. Rich, your video link was very helpful. Plus, thanks Wetdog. If I screw this up, I now know where I can go for professional help. Thanks again, everyone.

I wouldn't go by that video, it was bad. I doubt she has ever seen a nice original or re-finished case to know what they should look like.

I was never told your info, I kept mine in the reflocked case ( red velvet ) and last year i found a small rust spot on the barrel just in front of barrel joint, my two thoughts were totally reblu the gun ( losing the original saw blu ) or do a cold blu repair and build up the hole with a hardener, I chose the latter and upon selling it I will inform the buyer of why and how this happened, but just color me pissed, when I found that I checked my never used 19-3 for anything and it was clean, that would really be annoying as it doesn't even have a cycle ring on the cylinder.

Donít store your Gun in the Presentation Case!
Itís not called a Storage Case!
Itís a Presentation Case.

Not wanting to hijack this thread, but I have a wooden box from the 70’s for a 29. Free to first address to me. Not in great shape, but it’s free

Default Not flocked!

To th OP
Sir, your case liners were not flocked from the factory! They were covered with a 1/8" thick piece of blue foam rubber. This cover NEVER withstood the test of time, whether used to store a gun or kept sealed in their original shipping covering! If you remove the blue satin on your liners now you will find a compartment for the tools and the lid is probably gone along with the lifting knob. DO NOT apply flocking to the liners! The flocking will leave the top foam liner with a crust on it. This crust will not let the top foam "mold" to the form of the gun and probably crack, possibly scratching the gun! I recover these liners with a soft cloth, it's not original(which did not last) but it works fine for displaying the gun!

I guess I was the first to reply as Rod sent the case to me Many thanks to him for his generosity. I have been wanting to try this and had the flocking materials on hand in anticipation. I repaired the styrofoam insert and flocked it. The foam rubber in the lid got covered with spray adhesive and felt. I also had a case with the plastic insert and I used the spray adhesive and felt on it. All in all I'm very happy with the results.
