Sweet little Lefever 16 bore s/s
Well guys I finally took the plunge and just bought a tight little 16 gauge Lefever Nitro Special double trigger side by side shotgun with 28 inch barrels choked full and modified. The shotgun, has mirror smooth bores and is mechanically sound. All numbers are matching. The wood has no cracks or splits. It has wear where an old shotgun should show wear but neglect is absent. There is a trace of case hardening.
The stock does need refinishing but it's going to be a long winter and that project will help me to pass the time. I have done stocks before on rifles but do have a question.
What do you feel is the best method to keep the finish from building up in the checkering? Thankfully this gun has little to deal with.
Also am wondering about using modern ammo in this one and comments on that are more than welcome.
