Restoring KP2SC Wood Stocks

Here is how they looked when I first purchased them.





I finally began restoring them this week and plan to post pictures between the stages.

Here they are after the first step of restoration.

I used a brush on varnish stripper from Home Depot. Then I scraped that residual gunk off with a plastic scraper and a plastic brush.

After using mineral spirits to clean it with a shop towel, I liberally applied some elbow grease with mineral spirits and a 3M green heavy duty scour pad to get the tough varnish/stain areas down to bare wood.









The next step is some light ironing (just to raise some dents) and then on to some light sanding. I don't think I am going to need to do much sanding as I thought I was going to.

More pictures to come as the process continues.

On one of these markers, the trigger guard was loose, so I elected to take it off. The bent end on one snapped off while being straightened out and the other one has a gnarled head. Apparently it had been taken out at least once before I bought it.
Would anybody happen to have a set of the pins that holds the trigger guard onto one of these?

Nice job.... Let us know how the Ironing works out, I've wanted to try that on a couple of dings...

As for the pins osCommerce
I've tried to reinstall them once and didn't have good results... You need a special tool/press to do them right... I think most people have been using wood screws to hold them in or you can use a small 6/32 type bolt and through bolt it , then trim the excess off so the action doesn't bind....

To me, it looks like an auto body style pop rivet. whole kit with a couple hundred rivets is about $12, or was last time I saw several years ago.

You can use a hex headed screw with the flat top and a nut inside. It's what a lot of folks do. P

Are you going to use tung oil on them? p

Do you mean by gluing the nut into the stock? I'm going to refinish one soon and I've been pondering this same dilemma.

Since I had my stock duracoated and the barrel section is being nickled I opted for chrome cap screws with allen heads. It really looks sharp.

There should be a rule as to how many KP's one person can own.

Good job so far on those stocks though.

The factory finish was Orange Shellac in a 3 lb cut.
(3 lbs orange flake and 3 1/2 quarts of Methanol)
Or you could use tung oil, as suggested.

I think some checkering would look nice since you have it all prepped....

Also, old silver spoons can have some nice decorative designs embossed in them, and can be bent to make a trigger guard. Not original, but distinctive.

I've had good results with ironing out dents. As long as the damage isn't too severe.
