    Looks good, just enough done to make it function, good job overall.

    Looks good. That’s my preference also. I think they called it a “rustoration” on American Pickers.

    I call them "sympathetic restorations", where you want to respect the gun's history and not destroy it with full restoration.

    I had sent Roy Marcot pictures of this rifle and it's strange receiver, and got a reply today. He simply said in all his years documenting Rolling Block rifles he'd never seen another like this.

    It does look pretty good - nice job! You should document it thoroughly in closeup photos and measurements and post them so that they will be available when/if another one shows up and the inevitable questions are asked!
