While I like the finish on the stock I would love a different finish and get rid of the scratches. Any recommendations for it. ? Pictures will be included later. At Mardi grass right now.

Plan For This Rifle;

I. Refinish stock.
A. Natural?
B. Other Suggestions?

II.Repaint bottom,thingy, on bottom of stock.

III. Blue Barrel Bands..

IV. Possibly refinish Magazine Tube.

At Mardi Gras right now? I hate you.

Post up some pics when you get back and we'll help you out. But I still hate you.

How do you make the photos smaller?

I'm a lousy photographer and even worse when it comes to resizing pics and stuff like that. So maybe someone else can help with that.

However, I can help with the stock refinishing.

Disassemble the stock from the barreled action and strip it. Use a citrus type of stripper so you don't need to use water to neutralize it. That way water won't raise the grain.

I think you'll find that most, if not all of the scratches will disappear. They look mostly to be in the finish, not the wood itself. If that's the case, just lightly sand the stock with about 120 grit sandpaper. Then use a tack cloth to get all the sanding dust off.

Then you can use whatever finish you want to seal the wood. I'm partial to Tru-Oil. You can make it as matte or as glossy as you want.
I use 00 steel wool in between coats and 0000 after the last coat. Then I just buff it with a soft lint free rag.

I'm sure that others will be along to offer their suggestions as well. Good luck.

Thanks! Oh and Catching beads while watching drunk people yell to get beads is better than work, way better.

My wife and I love the Crescent City. We went there for the first time for our honeymoon. We went back right after Katrina. What Katrina didn't destroy could be great in time, but sadly the criminals and punks forced us to make the decision never to return. I'm not a pilgrim, but I'll never go back.

Ahh I understand I migrate between Mandeville and New Orleans all of the time to visit family. But believe it or not the murder rate has gone down quite a bit! But trust me Katrina wasn't the cause of the crime. I remember one thing my mom told me. When my sister was a baby some kid(not saying race) rode down the street and shot all of the cars on the block. The hole in our car was right where my sisters carriage was a few minutes before.
Scary stuff right there.
