This also came original with a Marlin model 275A 4x20 scope
Hi Gumpy, Thanks for the nice comment, and yes like I said before, a lot of work for something that looks so simply to do. This is my first time of refinishing a stock, and also a first of doing the re-bluing.That stock has some nice looking grain in it. Good job! I go for the low lustre finish myself. I tried reblueing an .22 that I had and it did not turn out as good as I expected. Course I was only 13 when I tried it. I just didn't think highly of the cold blueing process. WELCOME TO THE FORUM Vet47 and retiring!!
Hi Vet47, Thanks, and you know It's funny when something that looks simple to do, until you actually start to do the project.Beautiful job. I'm a little jealous, yours looks a lot better than mine. Congrats.
Thanks Gumpy, It's funny that you must of read my mind, since I was thinking of finding another rifle in bad shape and try to see what the outcome would look like.Looks very nice. If you enjoyed it, go out and find a basket case and bring it back to life. Preserve history!!
