Is all most finished...

I have been cleaning the 60 years of dirt, oil, grease and cosmo off the stock.

I did not want a brand new looking stock, but I did want to clean it up. I left alot of the dings and scratches and stuff like that.

I used Formbys wood cleaner on it, and it did a good job of cleaning the shellac off as well as the other grime, BUT did not bleach the stock.

Turns out I think I have a Laminated stock Mauser. When all was cleaned off, I am only putting on a couple coats of poly urethane, so far it looks good, considering who is doing the work, ME...

Pics when I am done.....

Yes the grain has a red tint to it....

I dont know what the deal is with the bayo lug, but it is in the white, so yes I agree, more than likely Ivan replaced it.

Thanks, I was worried I might screw it up, but it came out good.....
