    Sorry to derail this thread and turn it into a bouncing refinishing ideas in eachother.

    Oh I'm dying it with rit due for the stain I did a red one and finished with tru oil, my only complaint with the tru oil is I had to build up 15+ coats to make it look presentable and runs were difficult to get rid of.

    I'm making a stock like this again because I think I'm tired of the red and I'm bored haha.

    None taken. Everyone has their own methods and goals. Always glad to hear another opinion.

    Looks like you are already pretty familiar with the process on staining the stock with dye. That's a nice uniform color. I am definitely not a fan of Tru-Oil...it isn't nearly as easy to work with as tung oil finish and the plastic polymerized finish just plain looks tacky on most stocks.

    I'll start a separate stock refinishing photo thread in the milsurp section so that I don't hijack Catt's thread any more than I already have. Sorry Tim!
