Looking good!

I see you had a bottle of Wood glue. You may want to look into Acraglas from Brownells.

Candyman steered me to it and I have been very happy with it. It will hold even if oil and such is in the wood or gets into the wood. Check out some of Candyman's stock repair links.

Best stock repair advice you will ever get - seek Candyman's counsel. He is the stock repair and restoration Ninja...

Good timing you have there. lol As a matter of fact, I just finished up a basic phase on the worst one (split barrel). I tore it down, cleaned it up, had to do a little light stock repair. Turns out, after I scrubbed the bore, that it was already counter-bored past the split at the muzzle. The bore is pretty worn, but still showing some rifling. It was lacking action screws (which I have spares). I cleaned it well, put a couple coats of BLO on the stock after cleaning/sweating/repair, triple checked the counter-bore vs split. I plan on test firing it this Saturday.
I'll get some better pics and upload to photobucket later this week. I'll give a range report later in the weekend. Hopefully, all will go well.
I have not touched the other (2) since I have others that are cleaned and operational. All I'll have to do to them is scrub, maybe a hairline crack on one of the stocks, and replace a missing handguard and maybe a screw or two.

Matt,

Well you have had a year or so have you shoot any of the UFixems?
