    Stock Refinisher recommendation?

    I've got an older 336CS with checkered stock and forend that has some really beautiful wood on it, but has some scratching and dings. I thought about refinishing myself, but also thought it'd be nice to get it done by someone who really knows what they are doing. Any recommendations on stock refinishers? Maybe from previous experirnce. Thanks

    Isn't really hard. Just strip off the old finish, wash well with warm soapy water, rinse and dry it well, sand lightly as needed, then soak it down good with a 50/50 mix of boiled linseed oil and turpentine, wiping off excess. Do a few coats. Some like to buff with 0000 steel wool when dry. That's what I do anyway.

    If the checkering needs touching up or recutting, that's another story though. Requires special tools and patience I don't have.

    I refinished the majority of my rifle stocks. As has been previously stated, it's not a hard job, it just takes some time and patience.
    I like several coats of Tung Oil followed by Minwax paste wax. It gives a semi gloss finish that makes the woods character stand out. It usually takes me an hour to strip the wood and a day to let it dry. Then I apply the Tung Oil, 1 coat a day for several days or until I get the colorization I like. Once dry apply the wax and buff to a polish.

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!
