Default J. Stevens 410 Shotgun Stock Restoration

Along with the Stevens Favorite I got from my grandpa, I also got this J. Stevens 410 Shotgun that I'm working on.

Pic of the shotgun


Stock and handguard before restoration...not in that bad of shape



Stock and handguard after cleaning, degreasing, steaming, bleaching, and sanding



I haven't started on the WATCO Teak Oil yet, so I'm far from finished. But I love the way the grain of the wood came out.

At one time, they used nice wood even on utility grade guns. I have a couple of old Mossberg 22s that have grain that looks like a tiger's eye ring.

Very nice job on your shotgun.

I've seen rifle and shotgun stocks that have stains from either gun oil or other gunk. There are wood bleaching products available to get those stains out...that's what I mean by bleaching. Another method that works is running the stocks in the dishwasher with detergent.

I got some more work done with the stock and handguard of my Stevens 410 shotgun. Both got 3 coats of WATCO Teak Oil, a light sanding with 320 grit sandpaper after drying, and then 2 more coats of Teak Oil. Now to let them dry for the next few days.
