    I have an imported IHC I bought many years ago for $125 as a shooter, the barrel was shot out but the rest of is except the stock was fine. I had a National Match barrel placed on it and I spent a few weeks working on the stock. It was dried out and blond with no stampings I could recognize. After some sanding, steaming and some more sanding and some steaming and then some more sanding and some steaming I put about 15 coats of a walnut tinted Minwax oil finish on it. I use a 4895 load with 168 grain Hornady HPBT match projectiles and it will print about 1 1/2" at 100 years if I cut back on the coffee and heated discussions with my wife.
