I also want to work on the barrel, as you can see he did something to it and it's peeling all over and looks bad. Any thoughts ?

I'll get some pictures of the wood and barrel tomorrow so y'all can see what kinda job I'm in for with that

And yea I meant a butt plate.
quack-quack wrote:Ok good info. I'll look into different stains.
What do I need to do to take off the peeling paint from the barrel and not ruin the barrel so I can get it blued later? I'm assuming it's a paint of some sort but not sure. Is sandpaper bad? Or do they do it all when I take it in ?

It's a shooter/keep sake not a high value treasure. Numrich is a good start and there are other "Obsolete gun parts" sites out there. Repair it, clean in shoot it then pass it on.
