    Norinco 22wmr project

    After holding it for a day or 2 I decided the stock needed stripping and a proper finish done.

    Rifle as I got it


    Stock before


    Stripper doing it's thing


    After sanding with 200, 400, 800, 1200 then 0000 steel wool


    Left it in the hot water cupboard to keep warm and dry till I get the "special finish" for it.

    The next step was the bolt.
    Norinco's machining process is shit. The roughness is legendary.
    So after about 4hrs with 800 then 1200 grit wet and dry followed by 2hrs of using a Dremel and Autosol it is somewhat better.

    Bolt outer before...



    After...



    Firing pin before...



    After...

    Not too sure what sort of wood they use for the stock but they are so soft. I have a JW27 and if you look at it too hard it gets a ding in it.
    Shoots well though

    Haven't touched the trigger yet. Seems ok since I polished the bolt etc.
    Will be using a Gunworks 22mag suppressor once I have chopped and threaded it.

    Looks like I can do more on the wmr seeing as the weather is so crap this weekend.

    Put some colour on the wood today.
    Next step is coating it with Danish oil till I get the finish I like.

    Cheers, I already have the suppressor for it. It was on my 22lr.
    Will be putting a smaller can on that though.

    The stock is finished
    4 coats of Danish Oil and a light polish up using a terry cloth and it has come up quite good, if I do say so myself.
    I can polish it further with a wax if I want, but I think it looks quuite good as it is.
    Makes it look a bit different to normal stock refinishes.



    I still have to chop and thread it yet, but at least it's all back together.....for now.
