    Here is my last post on this rifle. Some of you may have seen the previous posts. Two weeks ago, I bought a bubba's swedish mauser for 100 dollars See before pic). I set out to clean it up and make something out of it, and had a lot of fun.


    I sanded & polished all of the bright metal, buffed the blued metal, refinished the stock (faux tiger maple, the stock is actually birtch), fitted a scope mount (rings are coming for Christmas, maybe a different / smaller scope too), groung the follower, improved the safety, ground the bolt handle, etc.

    I may attend the next gun show in my area and get another bubba'd something :cuss:for cheap and have some more fun :D

    below the pictures are from this morning with the final coats of clear applied and all metal cleaned buffed, & oiled. :D
