I have had this sitting around and just got her finished today.
I sent her to Shuffs Parkerizing Home Page
for a repark and twisted on a SA 1952 NOS USGI Barrel.
He also did a trigger job, and lapped the bolt.
I also got a Boyds Fancy Grade stock. This stock was a lot better size wise than the first one. I just removed alittle wood at the ferrule and smoothed everything up.The rear handgaurd was way over size for some reason and I ended up cracking it trying to thin it to correct shape.
I was lucky and found a guy that had 3 sets on Wenigs fancy grade handguards at a very good price.
So it’s a Boyds stock with Wenigs handguards, a real mutt to match the rest of the parts
Started with 80 grit to shape to size then 100. 150 ,200, 250, 400
I use two coats of Watco Danish Oil in medium walnut followed by two coats of Johnson Paste wax
