    Ross MKIII Model 1910

    It's about as nice as they get, I suppose.

    Enjoy, and thanks for looking.

    Thank you.

    Aside from the firing proof marks on the barrel and receiver, this one has no other marks at all. It does not have any military unit or police markings on the metal or wood, and no LC chamber reaming stamp. Stock does not have the typical multi-layers of linseed oilicon, though it is treated. There is a duffel-cut with an angle iron repair at the rear band.

    And it is the real M-1910. Later rifles have the abbreviated M-10 on the receiver ring.

    It is a superb example, with the original chamber spec no doubt, but as you can see from the spiral markings above and below the stampings on the butt, and the overall appearance of the stock, it has been quite heavily sanded.

    I'm sorry if that is unwelcome, but I mention it in case you want to discuss this with the seller. The remaining depth of the stampings clearly supports this.

    If people HAVE TO sand a stock to satisfy their OCD, they should at least do it by hand with the grain, not with a random orbit or too coarse paper.

    If you keep the rifle, you might want to carefully go over that area with a light grit paper and see if you can remove those swirl marks.

    Tragic really, like putting paint stripper on a piece of antique furniture.

    Sorry!

    The stock sanding is probably the reason why there is not a thick glossy coat of linseed oilicon layers. Not a fortunate event, but one which can't be undone.

    No need to discuss with the seller, as this was one of several rifles in an auction lot from five or six years ago. After selling a few from the lot to recoup my money, this one didn't cost much at all.

    Bone the stock and you will remove the swirls from the orbital sander.
    You will not remove any markings and if you are careful you will get a sheen on the stock like the day it was made.
    If you don't believe me get a beater stock and save some pork rib bones then dry them for a few weeks and Bobs yur uncle.
    Rub hard and take your time.
    I've made firewood look like a new stock.
    You might need a bit of linseed oilicon.

    There is only one small spot on the entire furniture which shows any sort of swirl marks, and it is just below the stock cartouches. I don't think it is orbital sanding, as the swirls are not uniform. But it is there nonetheless, almost as if someone used the stock as a backing to write on a sheet of paper, and pressed too hard with the ballpoint. There are some medium grit straight line marks in various places, such as alongside the right wrist, but even then not too serious.



    I will leave it alone, as the overall wood is pretty good.
