    I would buy some cerro safe and do a chamber cast. I have an 1867 Danish contract RB and the barrel measures something like .482 bore and .510 groove. Tight.

    I would think that the trapdoor stock finish is linseed oil. Use something to lightly clean it and start rubbing in light coats of boiled linseed oil.
