This was a little cheap single shot shotgun that was had for around $150…It had a pretty nice but light colored walnut stock so I refinished it with a oil/varnish blend that was sanded on with 2000 grit sand paper. I think it looks nice for what it is.

Looks good. $150 nowadays is the norm. I remember when you could get a single shot for about $40. I was browsing at a sporting good store and Remington rifles, Model 700, have gone up 400% in 35 years.

Agree that it turned out nice, regardless of what it is. The older guns are far better IMHO because they were all machined whereas today they are either stamped or injection molded.

My father bought a single shot Springfield.22 for 3$ brand new during WW 2. My brother and I both hunted squirrel with it. You did a very good job on the refinishing.

Isn’t it nice to be able to combine two interests: woodworking and firearms!
