    Default 1952 BSA CADET

    Started the restoration of my 1952 BSA CADET.

    Scraped it down with a piece of glass, then 80 grit working up to 800 grit sandpaper.

    Rotorbug here are three of my Cadet Major stocks that have only been oiled with undiluted boiled linseed oil. Approximately 8 coats on each stock. Stocks were not sanded down but one was done by the previous owner

    Finished item! I decided to have the metalwork Ceracoated even though I know it is not original. Don't plan to sell the rifle and not concerned about keeping the rifle original.
