Default winchester model 77????

i hope someone is fimiliar with these rifles. my grandpa handed me down a model 77 with tube fed magazine with a blonde stock. the stock isnt in the best condition but was told its a real nice shooter. are these good for a survival/plinking rifle or am i better off just getting a ruger 10/22? and if anyone can tell me where i could get a new or better condition used stock i would greatly appreciate it. thanks for reading my post.

Till you clean your new to you rifle up and shoot a few rounds theresno telling how good it is. They pretty good good rifles if kept up. If the blueing is good it is worth more than a ruger for sure. if not make it a good shooter and let it be. Well if you need a unfinished stock here one-http://www.gun-parts.com/winchesterstocks/oct29_01.jpg Or just open the crack glue and screw it and and enjoy it.

For a rifle 50 years old or older it looks pretty good.

Since the stock has already been refinished into the blond, wouldn't hurt it to use Citri-Strip and then restain it to a more appropriate Brown...
or any other color you like

It ain't that difficult...but I will advise to use a High Quality Stain...as in, Not Minwax...that's the cheap stuff...tends towards blotchyness & color seepage.
Its available in more colors, but it is the low end and gives one a lower-end stain as compared to higher quality stains...
Formby's, Old Dad's, General Finishes, Wood You brand, etc...get the good stuff, it ends up with richer color & depth

Now their Polyurethanes I like...and use their Marine Grade poly (Helmsman Spar) for hard-use hunting Gunstocks quite often...
and the Crystal Clear for showpiece stocks...

But having done much furniture & gunstock finishing & refinishing...Minwax Stains just suck, IMHO
