Default refinished my old jc higgins .22 bolt action

I just refinished this old plinker cuz it was really beat up. I stripped all the oily and stain off then sanded it smooth getting out all the sings and marks and re stained it with minwax light cherry and two coats of minwax clear gloss oily, then my buddy re blued the barrel for me, it looks great like a brand new gun, you would never know it was built in 1958
