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