I recently acquired a Marlin 30AS in a trade. My first thought was to junk it, but decided it might make a good winter project refinishing it. I’m sure I’ll end up with more in it than it is worth, but it will give me something else to do. My first problem are the stock and forearm. Someone did a very ugly refinish job on them in the past. I’m not sure they could be stripped and refinished. I’ve been looking around the Internet for a new stock and forearm, but haven’t had any luck. This Marlin has the forearm with the cap on front instead of the band. If anyone can suggest places to contact it would be appreciated. I’m also open to any suggestions on re-bluing or other methods to refinish the metal.
