Tryin a little project for the heck of it. Got an only cooey that i wanna duracoat the barrel (after sanding it and whatnot, I know the procedure for that already) but i wanna stain the rifle to more of a reddish colour. Is there a protective layer over the stock usually? I was gonna sand it down using a medium grit working my way up to really fine grit, then stain it. Is there any other ways to tackle this, and what should i use to protect the stain?
