So goes the Remington 788 in 30-30 WCF...

The gun arrived and was in the expected condition for a 40+ year old gun.

The first thing I did was add a spare factory magazine. These aren't getting easier to find.

The gun was disassembled and cleaned. Worn bluing was touched up and the gun was polished so all metal matched.

The stock was stripped, sanded, stained Walnut and finished with Tru-Oil.

I'll let it dry for a few days. Have some Warne Rings ordered to mount a NIB Weaver K6 Scope I've been saving for a project just like this.

Pictures will follow after reassembly is complete. This should make a dandy low recoiling rifle for my neck of the woods.
