I just bought a new Model 60 and was wondering if it is necessary to apply some type of protective finish to the stock such as Tru Oil or something similar? Also if I wanted to give it more of a glossy finish would it need to be stripped first? Any insight you could give is appreciated!

If you want it glossier you could put on a coat or two of TruOil. Buff the current finish with 4-0 steel wool and apply. To deepen the finish, buff and re-apply. If it's too shiny, or you want a better feel, buff and put on a coat of gunstock wax.

Great, thanks a lot that helps. Just to be sure, there is no finish on it that would need to be stripped first, correct? It doesn't seem to have any type of varnish or lacquer on it.

I can't imagine that it doesn't have a finish on it. I would think it would likely be some type of Urethane - I don't know if they still use Marshield. Whatever it is you can buff it with 4-0 steel wool and put on Tru-Oil.
