    I have a Win 60A with that rear sight in the forward position dovetail cut for the regular open sight. This was my father's rifle he got as teen in the 1930's - barrel is marked "32". I had never seen another like this pictured anywhere so posted it...

    I'm also using IMR 4227 in my 45-70 Trapdoor hunting load. Lee 459-405-HB over 24.0gr and .75gr dacron. 1120fps from 20" barrel. Think you have to save pictures as jpg not pdf files to show as a picture.

    All I've done is make sure the existing finish is clean of dirt, oil or and wax. I don't do anything in between coats of the thinned TruOil and nothing after the 3 to 4 thin coats unless you want to dull or shine the finish different than it...

    Cover the Browning finish with a few thin coats of the Truoil 50/50 and it will look like a hand rubbed oil finish instead of gloss.
