    I bet the recoil was also awesome!

    @Micky Duck I will give you plenty of warning when I come to inspect your collection so they can all be spotless !

    Yes the stock is repaired
    And I suspect that the dirt will be dried on oil from being stored and never shot.
    Likely valuable beyond our dreams and will remain a cabinet queen for ever

    I have several rifles that came from collections and might not have been fired for 100 years and the amount of old dried oil and dirt accumulation showed unfired for a very long time

    @Boxton No not bored. But both those rifles were relatively easy fixes and are all sorted now.

    But always looking into the distance at what's just over the horizon
