Nobles were built in Massachusetts, and went belly up sometime in the early 1970s, I think. Much of their line was made up of pretty basic, everyday "working guns", or boy's rifles. I've got a Noble 20F I was given, in fairlly rough shape. The bore is good, but that was all. I'm in the process of refinishing it, so far I've polished and rust blued the barrel/reciever, refinished the stock (looks like maple), and am getting ready to nitre blue the triggerguard, bolt handle, and screws. This one is pre GCA '68, no serial. Figure it will go to the first grandkid.
Just finished reading your note, Charley. Just received an old 20F from a family member. Would like to restore it a little before giving to my youngest son. There's some rusting on the barrel, bolt, etc. Can you either recommend a site or share with me yourself, how to remove the rust, and reblue the rifle? I think I can handle restoring the stock, but don't know much about restoring the metal. Any help would be appreciated...
