Default WIP on the BSA Single X11 stock

Hi All,

This is the BSA Single X11 Shotgun I aquired a couple of weeks ago, well the stock of it , although it appears to be unfired and in almost new condition the gun was made in 1959 and the stock would benefit from a little applied oil.

In it's years of storage somewhere it has picked up a few small compression marks which I decided to leave and just apply or rather refresh the finish. Or rather that was the original plan after applying a few coats of BLO it showed up the unfilled grain so................................................

A more intensive re-finish was decided upon and after a slight rub over with 800 grit Wet & Dry a stock finish kit was brought and I am now working with the grain sealer to fill the open pores.

As you can see the stock has some nice figuring especially for a BSA which are normally quite plain. I wonder if this might have been a sales-mans sample?

The "Single X11" was made as a budget shotgun mainly for export whihc is why the wood was not finished to as high a standard which I am working towards. Not quite original that's for certain but as the collectors value is low seeing as how not many are mad enough to want to collect BSA's I do not see it as a problem .

Hmmm sorry about the size but for some reason it will not let me reduce the size
Go Get them Floyd!
