Is there a way to add a little material to the spot that is worn, and file it smooth?

i agree with Hillbilly that TIG welding would probably be the best way or if it doesn't affect it's fuction just leave it be.

but with a small weld of a TIG welder and some very careful work with some files, it should be able to be fixed rather easily.

Speaking of 'Anna'....

I just put the stock back onto the rifle and decided to show you my project so far. I am taking it out shooting this weekend, and wanted to get it ready. The finish is still pretty shiney, and I have plans on putting one more coat of Tung oil on, and rubbing it down before it dries to give me that not so shiney look, but didn't think I have enough time to do that, and then go shooting so soon, so I jumped the gate and decided the gloss look will have to do for now. Here is my 222 all ready to go try out in a few more days.





Anybody have an idea how to remove the front scope cap? I think the previous owner glued it on.

I have a brand new Nikon Buckmark 3x9x40 scope on my CZ-455 Lux, and thinking I am going to switch out that scope for this older Redfield 3x9 on this Sako. And then that and the one more coat and buffing it will be completed.

Thanks all for the help.

(This afternoon I am going to be making my powder dipper for the 222's then finish reloading them with powder and tips)

Love the wood grain on that stock. A job well done indeed

sounds like a new suggestion for another story here on this thread!

try this. get some of the finest steel wool you can find and some Kano Kroil. rub the blued finish with the steel wool soaked with the Kano Kroil and then rub it out with some soft cotton cloths. it will bring the luster back of the blued steel and make it look almost like new again.

i cleaned up my father's old Winchester M70 a couple of years ago for him, after in had sat in his safe for more than sixteen years without being touched. it brought it back beautifully.

i originally bought my Kano Kroil as bore solvent as many benchrest shooter swear it's the best bore cleaner ever made. but have found it has many more uses as well. such as penetrant for rusted and seized screws and bolts, excellent cleaner for trigger assemblies and works great at restoring and removing rust from blued finishes. it's not expensive and it lasts a long time.
