    djh,

    Well that makes a nice welcome back to MarlinOwners since it has been down. NICE COLLECTION!!

    I'd say you like pistol grips.

    I like the 2 with the crescent butt plates best!

    How did the 39 start out, an 1897Texan or did it start out as a 24" barrel? That is an octagon isn't it?

    Regards,

    Geoff

    Geoff:

    The 39 were originally a standard 39AS with a 24" barrel. I converted it to a CB but not sure what it should be called, by changing everything forward of the receiver to a 39 Century Limited configuration. It is as you observed an octagon barrel.

    The little gun is fun to shoot and accurate as all get out.

    I do like the pistol grip configuration and thanks for the cudos.

    Just curious,

    What did you do to get the finish that deep of a color with that shine? Was the wood totally refinished? Or, did you just put something over the factory finish to make it look that way.

    Nice Job!

    GLC:

    The method I have used for years to finish my wood is to sand with 400 sandpaper just enough to remove the Marlin finish. I have a mix of two different stains to get the dark reddish tone. After staining the wood I finish with six coats of DEFT, either gloss or semi-gloss, clear wood finish.

    The final finish is almost indestructible, it is tough, will hold it's finish under normal use almost for ever. It's easy to apply. I lightly rub between coats with a very fine steel wool just to remove any roughness and then lightly wipe with a tack rag to remove any lint of foreign material that may be on the surface between coats.

    That's it. I have re-finished close to 40 stocks and it always comes out the same. In my eyes, they are beautiful.

    Before I retired I had access to the wood and finish shop of the company where I was a Manager. The people in the shop helped me mix and perfect the stain color you see on my stocks. Unfortunately I have only enough stain to do 3 or 4 more stocks, then I'm in trouble. It took much mixing to finally get to what I have now.

    Luckily at 70 years old I'm not doing them like I have in the past.

    I would suggest you start with the Beachwood Casey Walnut stain, that was my base, as your base color. Begin mixing a little Mahogany or Cherry to it until you get the reddish tint you want. It's hard to say how much it will take for you to get there.

    The guy's in the shop did the mixing and staining of Walnut wood samples until we found the one I wanted. After that they mixed me a larger batch and that is what I have been using.

    Hope this answers your questions.

    How do you deal with the checkered areas?

    coonhound:

    The checkered areas are not a problem for me. I dislike the sharp edges of the checkered cuts on a new stock, so I lightly sand over them. It makes it more comfortable on the hand and the areas are not a problem to stain.

    Sand lightly, stain and then apply final finish.

    djh, I assume that you wipe down the wood between coats after steel wooling with a tack rag to pick up anything left behind. Gotta say... Beautiful rifles!! Mr fixit
