I finally finished up refinishing a stock for a Remington 1100 that I have. The stock was caught in a flood, About six inches end of the stock the butt plate area was under water for 5 days. I left the shotgun at my cottage standing in a corner of a closet on the butt plate. The finish on these old Remington is sure tough. The stock looked like dumpster material. I stripped the finish the wood was sound so I refinished the stock. The end result was worth the effort. Many aspects of gun collecting I enjoy tinkering with this stuff.
