I appreciate all of your opinions, I am going to use Tung oil, hand rubbed. The hard part was taking steel wool to a new gun. I'm waiting for the 9th coat to dry now. I used 0000 steel wool after the 3rd, 6th and will on this coat then Ill put on 3 more and wet sand with 600 grit. After that I will hand rub with Meguires Mirror Glaze to take it to a deep gloss. If it is too glossy It's easy to dull it down. It is going to be my wifes gun so I'll let her decide. Thanks again.

Sounds like it's going to be VERY pretty! Naturally we'll want pics of the end result.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!
