    Very nice as usual North. I love to see your work. My grandfather had a similar 22 WRF (22 Remington Special) at his lead/silver mine in the Ruby Mountains of Nevada. I used to go there in the late 1940's and early 1950's. We used to rabbit hunt with the 22 WRF but even then that cartridge was getting hard to find. However, there was an old hardware store in nearby Wells, Nevada that kept a supply of 22 WRF on hand for my grandfather and the miners. He also kept a 1886 Winchester at the mine. It was chambered in 33 WCF which is another cartridge which went obsolete. He really liked it because it was much better for elk than the ubiquitous 30-30.

    The WRF's available through CCI and Winchester. I get them at my LGS for about $11. a box including tax. I keep a standing order for the ammunition.
    I rescued an old '86 .38/70, which indeed is a rare bird, back in the 1970's. A friend of mine bought it from me and added it to his extensive Winchester collection. The .33 Win. was a great old shooter with a mite heavier bullet that the old .30/30. Kicked harder to.
    Being a delicate antique I notice things like that.

    I love the looks of that stock. With it looking so good i vote for rebluing the metal. Might as well make the whole thing pretty.

    That is more than likely what I will do. I need to get some more Fx steel patina chemicals to case color the receiver. The barrel needs to be draw filed and blued. Right now with medical and family problems I am just trying to get the guns finished. But you are right that stock did come out rather well. I really like the brass butt plate.

    That is a really nicely figured stock. I reblued a Remingtom model 12 pump .22 for a friend of mine years back. The rifle had been my friends Grandfathers first rifle and his grandfather was able to see the rifle once again looking like new before he passed on.

    I recently gave my grand daughter a Remington Mod 12 .22 Remington Special (WRF). I did all the work on it. Now her dad gets to "Time" it. They are great little rifles, just a beast to reassemble from the junk box.
