Restoration of 20 ga. Ideal
Posted by Paul Wilczynski on January 22, 2020, 5:20 pm
I am having a 1924 20 gauge Ideal with 28" barrels restored. The stock it came with was in bad shape so I am having it re-stocked. I have a choice of going with American walnut or English walnut. The English is obviously more. Which way should I go? Also the Ideal came with flat diamond checkering at 20 LPI. Say with that or upgrade? I have always leaned toward keeping a piece as original as possible but with the money I am putting into this gun should I upgrade?
