    I like Vintage Iron. Both of these are very accurate, and both stocks are likely to be refinished.

    Circa 1960 Marlin Model 80 mag fed bolt action .22, Microgroove, 3/8" scope grooves, D&T for Marlin peep:

    Circa 1936 - 1939 Remington Model 41TargetMaster single shot bolt action .22:

    Very nice!

    I'd never refinish a survivor, but that's just me.

    Count me in as a Walnut and Steel fan!

    As I said in the thread about my Western Field SxS, I like to make the wood clean and get rid of peeled and melted old finish, making it look like it hasn't been refinished, just oiled, with all the character marks intact. No Sandpaper.

    I've got a targetmaster like that but it doesn't have a bolt. A bolt cost the same as the whole rifle.
