Good call!

My buddy just sold his too raise some funds. He ended up replacing the wood with polymer.

well i decided to go a different route with the colour. a divergence off the "russian red". this is the first coat of raw stain. its one called sangria.

its going to get the second coat tomorrow and a wet sand with the stain to get the color more into the wood. it should come out looking like a rich red with touch of purple



and i stupidly took the cleaning kit spring out of the stock. dont do it if you really dont have to. while i had it out i cleaned the cosmo off it and out of the stock. the base of the spring is MUCH wider than the hole it goes in and its a freekin bear to get back in!! took an hour to do it.

That's purdy. I went more brown with a hint of red on mine. But that red is really nice.

thats a minwax stain called sangria then topped with tung oil. i think it came out pretty well for the crappy wood on the gun. at some point ill order a stock set made from better materials and get a proper stain and finish. laminate is pretty hard to deal with

I used Minwax Red Mahogany for my base coat and then a water based cranberry red stain over that. I followed up with wipe on polyurethane.
