    What do you use to finish a stock?

    I have a grayish black laminate stock to finish. What would you use? Tung oil? Boiled linseed? Something else? Any tips and tricks for application? It's a custom stock and I really want to get this right the first time. Thanks!

    I like useing true-oil myself. Gets the wood just a little darker with a waxy type finish. Just finished an Enfield MK4 with it. Very pleased. Also did a CETME.http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=326934

    If its a sporting type weapon I too would use Tru Oil by Birchwood Casey.

    This was about 8 or 9 coats of BLO. I cleaned the stock with soap and water, leeched out a bunch of oil, then coated with BLO, and a vigorous hand rubbing after each coat. Spent a winter a couple of years ago doing it.

    I used Tung Oil on my CETME stock, I like how it turned out. I think I applied 5 coats over a period of 5 days.

    I used tru-oil on my CETME. These are all of the same rifle at different stages. The colors on the middle photo are the truest.

    Here's a couple. Haven't put on the CETME stcks yet. And on the #4 I tried to keep it as close to the way I got it as I could, yet clean it up, and protect it.
