So Anna, where did you find your L461? That is one sweet rifle.


This is what happens to a sanded stock! Notice the metal exposed ie floorplate and buttplate. Destroyed the value.

Anna, that rifle looks pretty good. might be another option rather than a total refinish and that's deglossing it. maybe some of these guys might have some suggestions.

maybe check this out, a deglossing agent. that and some very fine steel wool.

Thanks JP. I found it while I was down in Utah, and my Dad did the final 'trade' for me and just shipped it up to me.
It's kinda hard to tell from the pics of that auction. But I have confidence I can do mine justice. And again, I love Sakos more than any kind of bolt action rifle, and see myself having this the rest of my life.

Thanks Axxe for the other option idea, but I'm liking the complete refinish project. I like the challenge.

The scope is just a cheap Redfield 3x9, and Im planning on getting something a bit better quality, and then use the redfield to replace my cheap 22 AMT rifle scope.

not a thing wrong with that.

i think they might have messed up by not removing parts and trying to refinish it. personally, when i refinish a stock, i remove every thing. i only work with a bare piece of wood.

I took the 2 bolts out on the trigger guard thinghy underneath last night and completely cleaned it and inspected for any rust or whatever. The end buttcap plate and the 2 swivel studs should be a piece of cake!

Since we're talking about refinishing rifles I figure ill post a couple pics of my 91/30 I did a month or so ago. IMO the pictures really don't do it justice, it looks much better in real life. When I sanded it I went all the way up to 320 grit so it's smooth as a babies bottom

i use some very similiar to these. the shorter and stiffer the bristles the better. try the home cleaning products aisle at WalMart or a similiar store. Lowes has some really good brushes in the cleaning products section.

Ok, so I went to the store last evening and bought me this for starters:


Plus an old toothbrush, and a cardboard from work to not make a mess, and I'm about to go outside and go for it.

This is what I have so far:
Here was my gun up until about 10 minutes ago:


Here is my gun now:


here it is with all the hardware removed:
