    Great result! Guns that have your handwork in them are just better. Wish you many happy days in the bush with it.

    Basically did some YouTubing and followed the advice.

    I didn’t need to take the original finish off the stock cause it didn’t really have one on

    So i dry sanded it with 800 grain, and then wet sanded it with 800 grain and tru oil twice.

    Wet sanded with 1200 grain probably around 10 times….

    Then applied around 6 coats of tru oil every 2nd or 3rd day, once it had dried….

    Voila.

    I have an old brno stock that i will also be redoing. Ill take more photos each step and maybe document it a bit better

    The wet sanding steps really make a difference ito pore filling which not only looks better but also makes the stock more resistant to taking on moisture. For those not keen on a high gloss finish tru-oil can be dulled down with a light rub with 0000 steel wool. makes it look more like a hand rubbed London oil finish.
