I guess it is better late than never as they say, I finally found the pics of my ce 41 (Sauer & Son) and I finished up some pics of my dou 42 that I got from Dennis at Empire Arms. Unfortunately I did not take before pictures of the Sauer & son, when I first got it the shellac was very flaky and it did not take much to have it come off in your hands. I could have probably just used #000 steel wool but I used some Fomsby Furniture re-finisher and # 0000 & #000 steel wool to remove the shellac. Once done I applied about 4 coats of Tung oil, using the steel wool in between each coat to knock off some of the shine, once finished I buffed her up. Here is a pic of her when finished.

I basically used the same procedure as with the ce 41, I had to rinse several times to get the shellac color completely off. I used about 5 coats of Tung oil on this particular rifle but finally got her to the way she was supposed to look. Here is the same stock section when finished.

Last One

Last one. I have one other from Dennis and another non Russian capture, the other Russian capture I am keeping as is, the shellac job is excellent and the guy who did this one certainly took his time. I have the years 1940 through 43 and had to stop checking the Empire Arms site since I would surely get myself in trouble if I kept on going.
