Default Finished!

I promised a picture when I was done.



I used every stripper known to man and the black on the butt plate and barrel band wouldn't budge. By the way, Jasco stripper will melt nitril gloves, and give chemical burns.....lol

I think the black is powder coat.

She still looks stock, and I didn't do anything too amazing, but it was my first stock refinish.

It is definately worth your time to do, I really don't think you can mess it up.

Thanks again.

just to be complete, I only used 6 coats of tru oil. Sanding with 400 and 600 grit between each coat. I wanted a good functional finish, but not a "glass" look.

she came out beautiful.

now, if you still want the ebony finish..... hunt around for another walnut stock. no need to mess with that fine wood you have now.

here's a link for bleaching:

Basically hydrogen peroxide will do it.

here's a link for making your own ebony stain:

I did something like this back in the 80's on a black powder derringer. it looked ok, more like a zebra stripe than all ebony but was a neat idea for me to try.
sorry no pics, one of my bros decided he wanted the pistol for his collection.


Good luck and enjoy your handi work

That's definitely walnut. It came out very nicely. Good thing you didn't paint it.
