Default Finished refinishing stock and forend*PICS*

I'm finshished refinishing my stock and forend on my Mossberg 590A1. There was a wood "Bantam" stock(painted black) and a synthetic forend(black) before.

I wanted a change, so I stripped the stock and refinished it. I also ordered a new wood fore end from Havlin sales. and finished it the same color. What do you think? I kinda like the old school look

Stripped wood using spray on stripper - light sanding - used medium brown and light brown leather dye (alcohol based) then boiled linseed oil - and a couple coats of pure carnuba wax.

Very nice. I love the old school look. May I suggest throwing a OD or tan GI sling on it? I think it would look great.

Your Humble Servant,

I think that looks fantastic. Love the classic look that wood gives. No it isnt the latest tacticool shotgun, but it looks sweet to me. Ya did a great job.

Plus I also dig how the color on the stock shows loke it is well used and cared for.

Thank's all! I hadn't considered changing the sling color - I like that idea. Which is why , this morning, I ordered some OD Cordura 1" webbing I think the "cordura" is not as "shiney" as ballistic nylon. I'll post more pics with the new sling.

That looks just awesome. I love the old wood look as well. You ordered your sling to quicly as I was gonna suggest a tanned leather sling with buckes. I do want to see the pics of the new sling, so don't forget to post them.
