MOSSBERG 44(C)

Got a rack number marked gritty rifle with a Parker Hale 16D receiver sight and Marbles front sight. Already made repairs to sight and stock. Well after decades of ham handed kids the stock is beat. What was the original finish. There is couple three coats of shellac on it. I shot it ia bit and it's not worn out at all. Want to make it look original. Thanks.

Original finish may have been, BLO. Some of the old Mossy's had a redish shellac. Since these were civilian they could go the BLO or the Shellac. Others will chime in here shortly

Better figure out what wood you have first? If its true Walnut,You might not want to use any stain at all?

My C is walnut also. But what I find interesting about your rifle is that it came with a PH16D peep, these were installed on the 42MB Trainers once they crossed the pond to GB. But it is a nice upgrade over the original Mossberg sight and very hard to come by in the states.

No English proofs, and it is a medium to light colored walnut with no figure. I will keep busy till spring bringing this one back. Thank y'all for advice, the last 2 basket cases I chatted about came out great. I love em cause both of them have rube goldberg like actions that today would never be built. Now have 4 Mossbergs that will stay. Guess I am a sucker for old school yankee engineering. Thanks again
