The picture is great! So much more real than just his name. Thank you.

I would like to make it to the show but this weekend doesn't look too good.

Thanks

Jerry has his grandfathers shop records and is usually happy to try to research rifles with the data submitted to him. 
There was another---  Johnson;  Eric, who was a top tier competitive 22 rimfire rifle shooter and builder.  If my memory is correct HIS records are the ones in the ASSRA archives.

CC did not usually build stocks and when he did they were functionally utilitarian but not of the quality that equals his metal work.  When you see a finely stocked CC Johnson rifle it was done by someone else. after all he was a highly skilled metal worker.   In the Springfield OH shooting club CC belonged to there was also a local guy who was a highly skilled amateur stock builder who produced really elegant stocks for a small number of CC's rifles for some of their fellow club members.

If it were me  .  .  .  .  .    VBG !!!
   I'd consider preserving the original stock as it is; and completely restocking the rifle with a replacement stock that will suit your own needs and tastes.
Replacement stocks are available in unfinished form from a number of vendors. Most can be completed without too much difficulty using common tools with a bit of elbow grease and personal commitment.  I'm sure our fellow members can make recommendations

EDIT:    ANY GUESS WHAT KIND OF RIFLE CC IS WORKING ON IN THAT PHOTO???

For grins, you could enlarge the calendar on the far wall and learn the time the photo was taken and compare it to the info you may receive from the grandson. Who knows, it may be when your rifle was in the shop and..  well, you get the idea. Have fun.

The photo is captioned "January, 1948" and a Google-check establishes that the wall calendar corresponds to that date.  Thanks for the suggestion calledflyer.

Thats about the time My CC Johnson gun was in the shop.  its a beautifully stocked martini by that local craftsman, with a CC worked over action, and carefully fitted PH 22rf match barrel.  It was built for a local dentist, and the barrel has some interesting platinum wire inlays the dentist/owner probably did.

Sorry it took so long to get a few pictures, but life got in the way. I wanted to clean up the rifle first, but no time. I took off the forearm to get the code for JC Johnson, but he hasn't replied yet. The rifle is packed with grease that I want to clean out and it should look a lot better. I like the sights, which is what drew me to the rifle in the 1st place. The rear says Lyman. I didn't see anything on the front, but I didn't look too hard. I would bet they are a set.
