    By the way, what's the groups opinion on restoration of a piece like this?

    Welcome sir, once you do it, it’s easy. If you want to do it, I can walk you through it. Just call me after 6.

    Congratulations, that is a nice find. That is exactly what I need to complete my collection. If you’re thinking to part with it, leet me know. If it has its original oil finish, I would not touch it. I would try to find the proper period forearm and match its finish to the buttstock. Having that shotgun restored with high luster varnish and salt blued metal will be a big mistake as they were not finished that way before at that time.
