Thanks 72usmc I'll be sure to read all those. Was going to start stripping stock this morning but got behind in house chores and going to family Christmas gathering now.

Did go ahead and get the g96 blue cream off Amazon

By some freak chance your bolt is mixed and has a Tula star cocking piece I will trade a Izzy marked one if you need one. i must have 5 because I only collect Tula and switch out the cocking pieces.

I'll let you know 72usmc! Thanks for the offer, I'm excited to see what comes in from Liberty.

Currently reading through all the links you sent me. Think I've got some slight mold on my stock so just to be safe one the finish is off I'm going to do candyman method for cleaning it

Shout out to aadams22 for hooking me up with the trigger guard and screws for cheaper than liberty tree was selling them both for!

Already started stripping the finish off the stock, taking my time cause in no rush plus it's cold in garage

Christmas came early!

Got my order in from Liberty Tree, everything looks awesome, bolt is completely covered in cosmoline. All parts are Izzy marked, so an added bonus.

special shootout to aadams22 cause I got his trigger guard/magazine and screws in as well today.

I'll hopefully get to finish it up next week, I'll still need to return the excess parts to Liberty Tree. Aadams22 has a nice Izzy mark on it, so I'm using it

Been reading up on how to do my wood repair as well

Only reason why I bought it honestly, if it had been any other year I would have left it alone (I lie, I have an addiction, I would have gotten it regardless).

Just an update for those that care

I've kind of put this on the back burner cause I got my Chinese T53 in and all my spare time has been devoted to it. However, decided to spend some time on it today

Had the bolt disassembled and soaking in transmission fluid for awhile to break up some of the crud and get it well lubed. Got it out, dried it off, and cleaned out the rest of the gunk with brake cleaner, mineral spirits, and plenty of q-tips and a little of steel wool.

Reassembled and then came the magic moment, got my okie field gauge out and it passed!!! Didn't believe that I would have any problems but still just feels good to know

Still need Rob get a bolt tool so I can check the firing pin protrusion.

The barrel is cleaning up nicely, got it all oiled up and wrapped up until the stock gets repaired.

Speaking of the stock, currently have it next to my T53 stock so I can be motivated to work on it while I wait for the T53 stock to dry.

Plus need to do crack repairs on both
