Hey there! New member here and thought I would introduce myself. I am starting a restoration project on an old Remington model 341. My Grandfather originally got this rifle secondhand back in probably about 1994, and it was in some need of TLC. Looks like the gun had been dropped pretty hard as the butt plate and the stock were both cracked and the stock was missing a small chunk of wood. The blueing was in poor shape and the action was a bit hard to cycle but it did shoot. I decided to do a little work on it (I was about 14 back then and before the internet). but did not make it all that far before other things took over my life. The gun went into the care of my Uncle after my Grandfather passed but no real work was done to it. Well finally have the time and funds to put into this old gal! As a side note I had no Idea that this gem was manufactured back in 1936-1940, glad to see it has survived.
I started some work on the stock, gluing it back together and an initial coat of stain to see how she would look and I think it is salvage able and will clean up well. I think I am going to go with the Birchwood Casey stock restoration kit. Then of course the full dismantle, with cleaning and polishing. and finally re-blueing. I think I am going to attempt the Blue Wonder system. I also nee to find a new butt plate and trigger guard. All in all I think she will be a fine little shooter when she is through. If anyone has any advise on these model all help is appreciated!
PS. Does anyone know what the capacity on the magazine is for 22LR rounds?
