    Default Stock refinished

    I am pleased with the results, but what a job stripping the old factory Weatherby finish. But look what I found under that old gloss shell. Did 10 coats of hand rubbed Linseed Oil. Letting this dry before I do a wax finish. I love the look. Any feedback please. Griz

    Griz, that is absolutely stunning! What a beautiful piece of walnut under that gloss finish. Very nice work!

    Great job!

    What did you use to strip the factory finish?

    I used Citrus Orange stripper. Looks of coats and lots of time. Be carful around the spacers on the grip cap. I also did a Ruger #1 stock with even a bigger surprise in the grain under the factory finish. Boiled Lind seed oil does a wonderful job. Hand rubbed with at least 10 coats.
