Default Boyd's Pink thumbhhole stock for Marlin 60

Well, I bought a thumbhole stock in Natural Laminate from Boyd's and decided it would be perfect for the wifey's 1990 Marlin model 60...but she wanted a more girly color...so here's the stained results before the Tru-Oil.


The light makes it look about two-three shades lighter than it really is. The above pic has the color right on the back half.




Why YES! That IS a Light Pink Front Sight...again, color washed out, so it's a little darker in person.



Ok...now we're deciding whether to have the barrel & action Ceracoated in Pink...or some other Duracoat/etc/whatever...but it's gonna get the full pink treatment. It's just got to be able to handle a LOT of shooting without coming off!!

What wifey wants...wifey gets!!

Mind you, I don't like Tru-Oil for Color Stains after seeing how it reacted...it gives it a slightly brownish hue. Wifey can't tell, but I sure can.
I'll use a clear polyurethane if I ever do another non-Brown Color Stain job.

Lots more to be done...after the Ceracoat/duracoat/etc

Then it'll be Scoped...Pink again...and we're looking for a Pink Strap.

As soon as it's all done & we go for a range run...I'll get some pics of Wifey in her Pink Camo blasting away
