All my rifles and pistols mostly springers rangeing from cheap Chinese to expensive German

I have been given a barn find - an ASI APACHE , this is a Spanish make air gun. The bluing is pretty rusted with a bit of pitting but not a write off. The stock is in very good condition and has stripped very nicely.

The action had a few challenges stripping it down , the main stock bolt at the trigger end was cross threaded in place and took some getting out , it will have to be replaced , the barrel bolt was very tight but ok once removed. To get the spring and piston out is tricky, its all held in by the trigger block , you have to compress the spring about 1/2 an inch and then the trigger block can be lowered and pulled out , then the spring comes out.

so far the action is stripped , the stock is stripped ready for staining etc , the action has been wire wooled but needs more work doing, progress so far in the pictures

I will update on progress
