Very Nice!! I like to see them still in one peice,,,,I've sporterized so many,, back in the day when they were a dime a dozen,, But regret it now!
I still love anything Mauser,, that's why I own a dozen or more of them !!!!
A sickness I tell ya !!
Kan't Help Myself !!!
You know what I like to do with them,,, I like to use some linseed oil/mineral sperits,, 75/25 mix,, on them and just rub them out real good inside and out ,,,with no other restoration involved. It really cleans up the uneven spots from any soaked in cosmoline and make's the wood " POP" ,, it makes the cartouch's stand out nice too. And helps put some of the proper oils back into the wood too, keeping them in better shape and it also helps draw out the old cosmo that makes stocks "punky".
Pratice on a junker stock sometime and I think you'll like the results. Make's it nicer looking with out restoring anything,,, you're just giving it a good cleaning and oil reconditioning of the wood with out affecting the original finish. If you got heavy grime 0000 steel wool help's , but be gentle,, you want the grime,, not the finish.
