Bruce a beautiful restoration. How was the checkering inside the ssbp restored?
Does the trigger guard have the sn on stamped on the wood side as is typical?

A filler is needed. Most stockers make their own with a paste of saw dust and glue, then check over that. Stain helps.

Yes.

I personally liked it better before restoration. Kinda like refinishing the pine floor with poly in a 75 year old hunting cabin. I just like old original stuff, shows more character in my opinion.

But you'll have to admit it's as nice a restoration as you'll ever see.

Yes it is a very nice restoration. Julia's has told me there are many times they check with Turnbull to determine if a gun has been through their shop, the restorations are getting that good.

American craftsman and ingenuity can do anything possible given enough time and motivation. Finest in the world. Personally I like a quality restoration but, I'm a hunter.
