Here's one of the newest members of the family. A 1933 Hex receiver. Unfortunately a factory refurb like most so not 100% matching (forced mag and late two piece stock). Normally I would never alter a piece but being a dime a dozen and a refurb I decided to go ahead and refinish the stock using a red oak stain and urathane clear coat as opposed to the original cheap shellac which was peeling pretty bad on the front end. The blueing/parkerized coating was perfect on it so I didnt bother to redo the metal.
What are your thoughts on the refinished stock (be honest). I personally think it turned out amazing and brought the piece back to life. Should make a nice display piece along with my Tokarev and SVT as well as a great shooter.
The pictures really dont do it justice!
