    spend alot of time and about 2 packs of sandpaper flowed up with a good cleaning with alcohol then some stain and about 10 coats of santin polourathane from a spary can dont forget to let her dry at least 7 days so you dont scrach the finsh up re assembling the gun

    Beautiful finish! I like the grain and how it kind of looks like GI walnut on the Garand. Great job!

    Normally I grimace when people refinish vintage military rifles but your take on it is beautiful, looks very nice. I don't think our Mosin's will be worth much money in the next few years and if they are, it will probably be because they are unregistered guns, not for their historical value so what the heck, make it looks pretty.

    The price is climbing. Two years ago, that was a $79.00 rifle from J&G.
    The imports are slowing, the collector interest is growing and the price is going to go the way of the $69.00 SKS. (what I paid for my first one)

    the stain was minwax color ebony layed it on thick and let dry over night then buffedlet dry anouther 24 hr then reapeted not shoure what wood this is but i dosent like to take a stain just like rock maple
    it tuck 3 weeks from start to re assembily with all the drying time inbetween layers
    in the sun a nice olive green shows thure inside it looks black

    You did a beautiful job on that stock. You brought out the grain and I think that color is great.
