Problem with older 7mm is that they are very hard to sell. This is because their bullets are expensive and no one want to buy a gun and then 200 bullets that cost more than a gun. Churchill used to be a 7mm that many folk fancied before the automatic era. These days you buy them only if you are planning on a hunt or if you live in a mountain region for a long range defense.

From the pics looks like a cool mauser 98k action, with 3 step safety. Even has the stripper clip notch, and the cutaway on the right side of the receiver, from where the thumb pressed on the cartridges to feed in the mag. This was usually there on military stocks, so wonder how it ended up on a Churchill! Then again the Mauser action 98k was used all over Europe, before and after the great war. Just this original action makes this gun priceless in Pakistanů.

To me restore mean that you take of the stock. Get it polished by the best wood polisher. Take the gun for power coating or bluing.

However, I dont recommend this if you ever want to sell since sharp buyers never buy a restored gun because they think its hiding the faults.

It does not need restoring in my view, yet. Here is what I do when I buy a collectable:

1. Disassemble the gun completely; get a thin dulled needle and put the gun under a magnifying glass to clean it. This might take from a few sessions to many sessions.

2. Take some kerosine oil and wash the gun with it quickly. It would take all the dirt, grease, and muck out of it. Kerosine does lighten the blueing on the gun, but in my experience, it is minimal for a quick wash.

3. Repeat step 1 for any leftover stuff.

4. Get a mild blueing kit from the market, perferably Hopps #9, and blue the gun yourself.

Remember that this process in only meant for old guns with wooden stocks/furniture. I have some Before & After pictures of my classics, and they are amazing. I will post some shortly.
