Re: stock re-do
I now use ZAR tung oil fortfied with polyurethane.
Applies like tung oil; looks like a tung oil finish; "stays put" a bit better than plain tung oil, from palm sweat and rain.
The "palm sweat" part is crucial for varmint rifles, from my experiences. Hot temps and hours afield after woodchucks, ruined the factory varnish on several rifles over the years.
Years ago I used boiled linseed oil on walnut, but it discolors from rain exposure and usually needed some attention, after it had dried.
