    Oil to re varnish stock

    Hi all I'm doing a stock repair on my pig gun since it has crack in stock so I'm going to re finish the stock in after something like boiled linseed oil but won't need a whole 1 litre so any one have a half litre of that or similar happy to buy it just give me a price!

    I know a couple of pig hunters that use blood, mud, and leaves as a stock finish.

    A mixture of spar varnish and boiled linseed oil may be better. The boiled linseed by itself will stay sticky and has less waterproofing ability.

    Birchwood Casey Tru Oil will give your stock a lot better, more durable finish than boiled linseed oil.

    I have just re-finished an old Stirling Model 20 with some log cabin oil I had lying around (CD50X Extreme). There is two coats on here (all of about 20ml i reckon). Not sure how it will work in the long term but it looks the part for now.
