next up is my 1898 sporterized spr armory in 30-40 krag (family heirloom). it was given to me by my grandpap, who got it from his dad. i started out with a fajen stock and i replaced with the "original" sporter stock. i waited about 8+/- years till i got tired of "black" rifle. so i citristipped the stock(4x), then i did the steam iron thing, then 340 and 400 grit, barley dark oil wool paste(left it sitting for 2 days), 340, 400 grit, 0000 copper wool, 7 or 8 coats of minwax antique oil, rotten stone with 3 in 1 oil and finally johnsons' paste wax.
