Inherited my late Grandfather’s 1923 Savage Arms Bolt Action .22. It was his first gun as a kid. My Grandfather had intended on restoring it and had disassembled it and stripped and sanded the stock. When I received it the takedown screw and trigger guard were long lost. Located some original part replacements and did a restore. Yes… grandpa was an electrician and that’s how the stock was connected to the barrel. Electricians tape.
This was the whole reason I built a shop in my basement. Just for this.
First shot? 50 yards. Iron sights. Soul can was hit. Nice little gun.
This was the first time I have restored a rifle. I’d like to think that Grandpa would be proud…
