In the process of refinishing my 1984 336, I got tired of looking at the worn clearcoat finish that was on it. Stripped it down with Citristrip( it did OK but was a little weak), stained it with a red oak stain, and now on the first linseed oil coat on it. I'm not sure how many I will put on it but it sure does look better now.

Let me get a couple more coats of linseed on it and I will take pictures. I should have taken some before pics but I didn't. It was a very light colored finish on it, nothing like the finish my '69 336.

I used Red Oak stain on my 336 SC. I think it did a really nice job.

Halwg, that red oak does look good. Might have to give that whirl on my next project. But I have to wait until I get that 1895 CB off lay-away. :(

Looking forward to seeing some photos from countryfarmer as well.

Hawg that SC is very pretty. It's too bad you won't be able to hunt with it. Too nice to take into the woods. You should trade it for a 1977 carbine so you can hunt with it. I know where you can make the deal.

We don't believe you, it's just another made up story. You must have proof (pictures) for us to believe. ;D ;D ;D

countryfarmer, welcome to MO!! Looks like you have a nice project going there. As you may have figured out we do like pictures here on the forum, especially pictures of our projects and text to tell us how you did the project. Lots of information here and helpful folks. Take care, John.

I'm gonna have to wait for a good sunny day outside, tried to take the pics indoors but they just aren't turning out good enough. They don't look as good as that 336sc above.
