Picked this up couple months ago for 300, didn't like the stock; stock and forearm didn't match. Decided to do a quick refinish job with my favorite stain, vinegar and steel wool, I love the look of this stain and always have, very easy to match different kinds of wood with. The first picture doesn't really show the different wood, the second one does though. In the third pic I'm trying to match the butt stock and forearm, the fourth pic shows what I believe to be a match. The fifth pic doesn't show much except the tru oil rub, I used tru oil spray the first 8 coats, sanded with 320 grit in between coats, then the last 4 or 5 coats I used 0000 steel wool. I think it'll make a fine brush/pig gun. Just posting for fun, not trying to factory match anything, what ya'll think?

complete.jpg Thanks Leverforever, It was definitely two different kinds of wood, probably the butt stock was replaced at some point. It came with a hunter leather strap and a cabelas scope for 300 at the local gun shop, couldn't pass it up or at least that's what I told my wife:)

Mike, your refinish job is awesome. Just had my 336SC .35 Remington from 1963 professionally refinished because the forearm did not match the butt stock also. I have a 83 year old friend who makes beautiful stocks out of a hunk of wood and he refinished it for me. There was also some "blood spots" on the bluing and he touched all of them up with cold blue. The darn thing looks almost too good to drag out into the woods chasing Whitetails. Just wish I had the talent to do wood work like you!

Stunning finish! Makes me want to do one of my Marlins the same, however, I would definitely opt for the satin finish.

Great job!

Jack
