This '42 defarb was done by years ago by our very own David Stavlo. David worked this Armi Sport over from top to bottom, creating a beautiful piece that anybody would be proud to own.
David started the process by stripping the stock before re-contouring the wrist, comb, butt stock and lock moldings to the dimensions of original '42s. He then re-finished the whole stock in a dark stain before sealing it with Linseed oil and Bee's Wax-the same finish applied to originals. Finally, David finished the stock work by stamping the correct Springfield cartouche on the left lock panel. The finished stock is outstanding and now the stock looks nearly identical to an original.
David then turned his attention to the barrel. He filed the Italian Markings off the barrel and re-stamping the serial number on the barrel's underside. He then made a brass front sight and soldered onto the nosecap before being shaped to the correct height and width.
Finally, David installed period-correct taper pins in the swivels before lightly antiquing the whole musket. The result is a beautifully defarbed, Springfield 1842.
