Refinished Tikka T3 Hunter - Tru Oil
5 Attachment(s)
Hey Y'all, I am new to this site and this is my first post. I just refinished my Tikka T3 Hunter in Tru Oil (23 coats outside / 6 coats inside - wanted it sealed as completely as I could). I just thought I'd share it with people that could appreciate it. I am waiting on my 30mm rings to get here so I can mount my Euro Diamond Scope on it. The first pic is of another T3 Hunter so you can compare. I did not take a before pic, but the finish on this rifle is identicle to what mine started at. I also polished the bolt with 2000 wet/dry paper to a mirror glass finish. The finish in real life is not as glossy as the pics because of the camera flash. The finish is more of somewhere between satin and semi-gloss. I just needed to refinish it so I could bring out the lovely fiddleback (tiger stripe) in the wood. Thanks for looking.

Well done. That's some pretty woodgrain.

Just as CA357 said, beautiful grain in that stock. Marvelous job you did there.

Wow! The difference is remarkable. The refinished one looks really good.

Excellent job you did. That stock sure is PRETTY now! I've always been a sucker for pretty wood.
