Default Refinished Tikka T3 Hunter - Tru Oil

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.
