Ya I did my research and its nothing special. I'm restoring it as my new elk rifle. I haven't decided on a finish yet but I know I want something rugged and field ready but still a nice looking finish? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated

Just do a gunstock(that is the color name) stain and about 6 coats of Tru Oil sanding in between coats. I just did my father in laws shot gun and it looks awesome.
