1873 Winchester Rifle Forend and Stock Replacement / Restoration

This was a fun job and a change from target shooting, but the challenge was to replace the stock and forend and keep the authenticity and patina of a gun that is over a hundred years old.  Too shiny is not good and I feel that if the work doesn’t stand out, it’s a good job in this case.
