    I had a 514 that turned brown on its own, cleaned up the stock and did a linseed oil finish. It looked nice enough that someone talked me out of it.

    Your last post reminded me that I need to put a set of swivels on my 510 also.

    Looks good, nice to bring one back.

    The sling will help when carrying a turkey or a brace of squirrels; not to mention the shooting aid aspect.

    Nice to see that 510 get a new lease on life. Nice job.
    I like the 500 series too. Had a 510 that I gave to a friend, have a pair of 521-Ts but by real weakness is the 552. I have 4 of those now. One scoped, one with a receiver sight and two as issued.. (-:}

    Used a little better piece of wood to make a stock in those days.
    Redo looks great.
    Many more great shots in that one.
    Nothing is impossible for the person that does not have to do it.

    As fair as I know the scope mounts that fit to the left side of the receiver are for scopes less than 1" diameter. The receiver will need to be drilled and tapped. I would drill the top of the receiver for weaver bases and use rings for a 1" scope. Your choices are unlimited for 1" scope but really limited for the smaller scopes.

    the receiver is already drilled and tapped for a mount on the left side
    I was just looking to make it look like it did many years ago
    Thanks

    You'll need a vintage Weaver N-mount and J series scope. It may be a long search.
