Remington Model 121 Field Master .22S/L/LR

I recently came in possession of the above firearm, and since ordered a new firing pin, the correct rear sight and elevator, and a butt plate. Below are the photos depicting the condition it is in. I started re-doing the stock and the forearm repairing the cracks, and next I'll start on the metal polishing it out and re-crowning the muzzle. Once I'm done I'll re-post the finished product.

Below are the final two photos.
sorry about the quality of the photo's of the stock, I was trying to show the large crack in the grip. I do believe I'll be able to repair the stock in as good as new.

The Remington Model 12 is worth some serious money, there gunjunkie, sure would like a photo of it.

That is a beauty there gunjunkie, looks just like what mine will look like once I get it completed. I thought the Model 12 Remington came with the curved steel butt plate that goes into the top of the stock. I'm sure there are a lot of different models though. I did note that yours has the sporter stock, where mine has the pistol grip stock.

Thanks, mine is a later model, made in 1936. The only thing with the 12 is they weren't designed for high velocity rounds, since they hadn't came out yet.
I've got a good stockpile of CCI standard velocity though.

Yep, I too have a generous supply of CCI standard velocity, target ammo, in fact it was the only .22LR ammo that came to WalMart during the crunch.

Well here she is folks, and it shoots real fine also. BTW there gunjunkie, mine will only shoot the standard velocity LR stuff also. From what I can figure out from the serial number it was one of the earlier produced models. It will shoot high velocity .22LR but it won't consistently eject the empty casing. However it shoots real reliable the shorts, longs, and standard velocity rounds and throws the empty casings into the next county.

Below is the final picture of the stock of the firearm. Actually it looks a lot worse than what it is, as it really blends in with the rest of the stock, it's simply because of the way the flash hit it. I'll take a picture of it in the sunlight and you'll be able to see what I mean.

Below is the photo of the top of the grip that I stated wasn't as bad as it came out because of the flash.

Nice job- that's a good looking rifle!
I am a big fan the pump action .22, I don't really know why. I have never been able to find one that met my criteria- price and condition so I ended up buying a new Henry instead. It is nice but it's just not the same.

Those Henry rifles are very nice, in fact I've got the Henry Big Boy in the ,357/.38Spl. very accurate. BTW I've also got an old Winchester model 62 pump.

The parts for my rifle came in yesterday, so being as I'm retired I had plenty of time to do the cosmetic things such as have the bluing done after I polished it out, and repair and finish the stock. My personal range is less than 10 minutes from my home, so test firing it was really easy. It's been really hot out here and the wind has been blowing pretty hard, so my little gunsmithing business has been pretty slow here lately. It sure is a simple gun to take apart, and re-assemble though.

After reviewing the photos I noticed I didn't do a cold blue on the butt plate screws, will have to take care of that here mo ricky tick.
