No idea where this belongs, feel free to move it mods.

I've tarted up(appearance wise, not performance yet) an old Birmingham made Webley & Scott Excel .22. It was going to be a winter project but once I start things I have a hard time stopping.

Stock rifle with the horrible factory finish;

I took a knife and scraped off the horrible finish;

It was then sanded back to bare beech and Danish oiled. Next up was adding a torch with a pressure switch, a silencer, sling mounts and swivels. I made a sling out of what I had at hand over a couple lunch breaks at work;

The whole thing cost around £50. It was £20 for a new silencer, £13 for the torch from Hong Kong, £5 for the Danish oil and £10 for the sling mounts and swivels. The rifle was a gift for some building work I'd done for a friend, it belonged to her dad who passed away. I figured I'd do it justice and reckon he'd be happy with it. Looking forward to years of shooting and passing it on to my son in future.

Looks worlds apart from the original state. Finish is much better. Have a go at tru-oil next time for a finish I find it a bit more hard wearing.
Will you be doing anything to the spring or is it still strong?

The spring is still going strong but I'd like to mod the trigger next. It was one owner from new and rarely fired until I got my grubby mitts on it. I looked at tru-oil but wanted a light finish on this one. Might have a go with it on the next. I'm not bothered if it starts to darken and patina a bit from handling it, it'll give it that worn in rusticated look I rate so highly.
