Default Restock of a Trojan

Started work on restocking a Trojan 12g.

Original gun that had the buttstock broken from the wrist up through the head. Right side of the head was broken right off and some other large pieces of wood were missing on top and bottom. I was able to glue the head back together and use body filler to build back up the voids in order to get it onto the duplicator. After getting it put back together, I found that the original dimentions of the stock are perfect for me in every way, so I could do a complete profile duplication.

I finished heading up the stock and fitting the action today. More pics to come as work progresses.

I am keeping the original forend. Nothing wrong with it. Just refinishing it and recutting the checkering. Original barrel bluing is in great shape. I will most likely leave the receiver as is for now.

Here are a few pics of the New Trojan buttstock with some finish on it. Just need to cut the checkering.
