Great Job!!

I have several hand-me-downs and I know the reason for wanting to 'keep the wood'!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The way I see it, I am gonna keep this thing all my life regardless. I say it gives the gun some character, you can tell when an old gun has some stories to tell.

Glad to see you fixed it. I still have my original stocks,but since I still hunt with mine I decided to put on the synthetics. Mine was made in 1906,and the wood is the original,and in great shape.

Nice looking stock there Tx, mine was a little more beat up than that. I might add that in a couple of the pics looks like its dull but I buffed it out with a cotton T-shirt and it looks pretty rich now. I can thank CA for the tips, it looks great IMO.

Great job, it looks a whole lot better. It just needed to feel some love.

I still have my Dad's Old Model 11 shot gun. I know what ya mean when it comes to keepers. Dad replace the four arm on the gun 40 years ago and now the stock is starting to crack on it. But i dont shoot it a lot anymore so it just hangs on the gun rack. The one i have has the US stamps on it with the bomb stamp. dad said the gun was a sec arms prison gun in WW2 It had a green coat on it but most of it has gone now. looks like it was blued under the old coating. gun still shoots great but kicks the heck out of ya. Thanks for showing the pic's of yours nice to see other ppl with old guns that was handed down to them.

Quicks and easy way (I take no responsibility for injury) toss that sucker in the dishwasher.

I used a nontoxic safe of kids stripper (Not that kind you dirty old bastards) Ready Strip Kit - The Official Site of AsSeenOnTV.com This is the one thing we got from the AS Seen On TV place that really did work and work good.
