A friend's young son was given a Remington 511-P. After his second trip to the range I volunteered to do a restoration. The stock was water stained 4 inches up from the toe and had an assortment of nicks, dents, and gouges. The left side of the stock had a Y shaped cracked through into the barrel channel. The exterior metal and sights were pitted, but the bore was clean. While the rifle would likely fetch less than my time at minimum wage, it's nice to help bring another shooting into our sport.

Well, a nice piece of wood certainly layed under that cloud. Well done.

I have found it to be true that many older Remingtons had very nice wood hidden under that "cover everything to make them all look the same" finish, but that one is exceptional.... very nice work!!
