Lilttle project on my Rossi 92...
 
I have finally gotten around to doing something with the wood stock on my Rossi .357. Original finish is flat.

This pic shows the forestock (which I have done nothing to) for comparison sake. The stock is about half done in this pic.

This is my first attempt at a project like this.

Very nice! What exactly did you do to the butt stock? It looks 1000% better than the fore end.

I started by wetsanding with 400 grit sandpaper, not a deep sand.. just lightly, then started applying Tru-oil. In between coats of Tru-oil I would lightlyl wet buff with 0000 steel wool. I would allow it to dry until it wasn't tacky (I work in my garage which is NOT temp controlled), sometimes it would be 3-4 hours other times it was 24.

In this pic I'm about 5 coats in. My plan is to do 10 coats of Tru-Oil, then seal it with some "wax". Again, since this is my first try I"m not 100% sure on the "wax".

I have one small "run" in the finish, but don't want to strip it down and start over - I buffed it out pretty good and is only noticeable if you are really looking for it. I have now started on the fore end and I'm about 3 coats in, same process.

When I am completely done I'll reassemble it and post a pic. Thanks for your comments!

To speed things up, try goodling Tru-oil and Armor All. I had good results on a Marlin 336. I could get 5 coats done in a day easily. The Armor All works as a catalyst to speed up the drying of the Tru-oil. Do small areas at a time. Look up the directions though. I think Rimfire Central had a thread that went into good detail on the process, that I used as a reference when I did my Marlin.
