I've spent a couple weeks working diligently at breathing some new life into my 243. The reblue job is a bit rough, but I think the stock more than makes up for it. I sanded it down to 600 grit and refinished it with tung oil. I polished and blued the bolt handle, floor plate, extractor, and trigger guard. I patina'd the bolt knob (much better than the old shiny brass). So... Whatcha think?
