    Got this Remington 31 TC from someone on the Forum with full disclosure that the stock needed to be refinished.

    I stripped with Homer Formsby and paper towel.
    Joe Goldberg did some sanding and expertly fitted a new old stock Mershon pad I found on e-Bay. Stu Gabriel posted a picture of the bead on his original condition 31 TC. I refinished with many coats of Tru-oil and two coats of clear paste wax. Who would have thought that such beautiful wood lay under such a rotten exterior?

    Here are the before and after pictures:
