    I'm working on it, the forend is a little bit dry and needs a couple coats of linseed.

    I actually began working on the wood a couple weeks ago and it is now looking to my liking. The forestock had a small crack near where it bears on the butt socket, which I injected some glue into and clamped. It likely occurred when the previous owner attempted to remove the butt without removing the forestock first. It was also quite dry so after the crack was repaired it got a good soaking in RLO for a day or so and set out to dry for a couple weeks.

    The forestock seemed dry enough so I went ahead and assembled and test fired the rifle today. I put a couple of rounds into a berm from a distance with a string and no issues occurred, everything cycled fine.

    Here's a photo of the assembled rifle, sorry for the poor backdrop, my basement isn't exactly photogenic:

    Unfortunately not, It was a blank one purchased off eBay some time ago that I have been using it as a placeholder. One day I will either find an original Britishicon one or get a punch set and stamp it.
