This started out with a good but in-need-of-finish walnut stock and a good deal of browning on the barrel. The feed tube was very brown (below is a pic from the guy I bought it from last year). I refinished it with BLO and tung oil. I didn't want a "mirror" finish because, after all, this is a Westernfield (Montomgery Wards store brand built by Mossberg) and was probably $3.50 when it was new a Long Time Ago. Tung oil was rubbed in by hand over a week and a half, morning and evening. The stock needed very little work. I did not intend to redo the barrel, but after rebluing the feed tube, the peep site (shown in original pic...can you believe it has 14 parts!) and some other things I figured I might as well try it. I used Birchwood-Casey Blue and Rust Remover and cold Bluing liquid. The bolt I originally intend to remain unblued with the exception of the bolt handle, but I could not properly mask it off and ended up deciding to do the entire thing. I don't have any idea what it was originally. This is factory drilled for a scope. I sourced a very interesting case-hardened Mossberg No. 8 mount and a fixed Mossberg 4x scope. Along the way I also bought a nice Mossberg No. 6 quick-release target mount and a fixed 4x scope but I could never find a base for the mount. I have new screws for the base and will put them soon. Along the way I sourced original screws from http://www.havlinsales.com/ for the butt and the trigger guard (as well as a trigger spring that I lost while polishing the trigger with a dremel ). Anyway, this is my third refinish (Mosin, SKS, and this) but my first attempt at rebluing.
