Yea I cleaned both with 30 cal bore brush, they just look pitted and very worn. I have others that look much better, however for a rifle thats this old there not all gonna be in pristine condition, and I am realizing that.I will keep them, the stocks were some of the best Ive seen. I like refinishing them and Im working on both of the stocks as we speak, I am using Red Mahogony stain and Wipe on poly. Im going to transfer one of my Hex Ex Dragoons barell assembly to one of these stocks, cause it came with a horrible stock but the metal work is awsome.Thanks for the advice.
