The stock could be a 1973-'82 model 880 if the buttplate says "Power Line". The end that attaches to the gun being broken off keeps me from saying for sure.

The BBs are what surprised me when I saw them. They look to be concentrated at the pistol grip for whatever reason.

Very interesting dissections.  Thanks for posting.

The BBs were flat grey, and at first I thought they were lead, but they proved to be steel. I never gave a thought to a rifle's center of gravity, but maybe Daisy was trying to balance something out? It must have been for a good reason. I look at it this way: four stocks like this would have used 1,000 BBs alone. Kind of expensive--unless they were trying to get RID of BBs.Smile
BTW--the butt plate does indeed say 'Powerline'.

Rejected BBs, maybe? It would be interesting to measure some of them to see what their diameter and concentricity looked like.

I thought about that too, as they were uncoated BBs. I thought about dropping them thru my drill bit sizer to get a dimension, but here is the problem. They still have residual foam on them. I tried to soak it off via: water, beer, WD-40, gasoline, denatured alcohol, mineral spirits, acetone, and lacquer thinner. Nothing worked. If you would like, I will send you the lot of them to experiment with. Just do not mix them up with your good BBs...

I can see how getting the cured foam off would be a problem. Acetone cuts it when uncured, but after it cures I guess it has to be mechanically removed, so I don't have anything that will do it either.

You might try burning the residue off then soaking in acetone. Save the beer for later.

Try more beer.  For you, not the BB's.  Even if it doesn't work, you won't care!

Zipper, fire produced an appealing glaze (sigh). I will try BSAGuy's solution and attempt to apply beer until I can no longer focus on the appearance at hand. That should suffice. Cheers!
