Marking Restoration Work!

I’ve made a plan and started today using a new mark “MP” in an oval. Both these rifles were Stock-up major restorations. For rifles without a trapdoor butt I plan to mark them under the barrel just in front of the forend like a barrel weight number on a high-wall unless someone has a better idea.

50 years from now there'll be people collecting MP marked guns and discussing them on forums like this!

Very nice work, Michael, the marks seem appropriate.

Not to hi-jack things, but would you care sharing your finish recipe used on the Wundhammer?

Best,

C.

They already discuss them...

The nice thing is that in the information age we live in, it will be known from the start why the MP in a oval exists, who put it there, and why.


AKA garyg, depending on how confused and which computer Im on.

How much of a restoration would ethically require a "mark"? I have a Parker that is a wonderful restoration, but the only workman who offers a "mark" who worked on the gun is DT, and he did a very small percentage of the restoration. Should he "mark" the gun and take the blame for a bad buttplate installation that his did not do? Just giving my two cents.

Will someone in the future think those lovely restored Springfields are ex-RCMP guns?

This will give you folks a better Idea of what was done to the Wundhammer. Both the Wundhammer and the Adolph were just stocks when I got them. I can tell the next owner what was done and that would be as far as I would have a say in things. With the prices these rifles are bringing these days a buyer needs to know the difference.

Just a little RLO was rubbed into the wood, the stock was in fine condition just needed cleaning.
