Vergeltung--Yeah, you lucked out on the stock. Nice. Rest of the rifle looks OK too, in the pix. Were it mine I'd keep it just as you got it--it IS an historic rifle, after all. Take it apart, clean & oil the innards, put it back together carefully, & yr done!
Well, if it's oozing cosmoline, you'll have to clean that up, but that'd be all, IMHO.
Now you've got to find a shooting match featuring WWII rifles, load up some 8mm, practice up, and find out how she--and you--do.
Thx for sharing!
And, given the time of year, Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukka/etc!
God Bless America
