The paint  stripper was a cheap B and Q brand
My set of punches and Birch wood Casey gun stock kit arrived
So.... Finished sanding stock cleaned it and applied Walnut stain  as photos .
Used new punches to remove roll pin which attaches cocking arm to trigger block
The trigger adjuster was seized I had to strip out the trigger parts to make room  for small pliers and 3 in 1 oil spout to  free it up. Reassembled trigger and hit / slapped gun with hand to check trigger sear didnt trip when jolted . Set adjuster to make trigger pull at bit harder. I am glad I photographed trigger prior to and during trigger strip as a spring fell out and I had no idea where from, Turns out it was from behind top sear  and i found out location by checking parts  picture on chambers airgun spares site .
Waiting now for my cheapo workmate and sash clamp ( soon to be converted spring compressor) to arrive  . Some u tube footage of a chap using a wood block to put pressure on gun  with barrel resting in another block of wood but I am going to make a spring compressor any way  for future projects so Iam going to wait and use the sash clamp/compressor
Gun stock looks good , next up five coats of Birchwood casey stock oil with 24 hours between  then final wax / protector coat

THANK YOU
Bit more help If possible I had to strip trigger on gun as the adjuster was bent/stuck  and I had to get the sears and trigger out to straighten/lossen  and put some oil on it  so it moved again. When taking out the trigger i didnt see how trigger spring sits against trigger? is it image one or two attached ?? I appreciate it is held in by roll pin and sits against trigger Ive photographed like this to make it clearer
Any help most appreciated
