Remington 31 from 1934:

The finish on the stock was deteriorated beyond repair:

so I refinished all of the wood myself:

Looks like your efforts are paying off nicely. ;)

Make sure you post some pics of the final product.

Will do. But there will be a slight delay.

Although I could get the gun disassembled on my own and the wood refinished, I could not get the barrel lock/nut assembly back on:o

The whole gun has been sent to my favorite FFL/Gunsmith who will give the action a well deserved cleaning (maybe the first in 78 years) and assemble the barrel lock/nut properly.
