    Oiled stock

    I have a walnut stocked rifle that's factory oiled, what product should I use to keep it looking good?

    I emailed Beretta New Zealand asking this
    I spent $4.35k on one of their products and they didn't even bother to reply.

    SCherells oil is a great oil finish product. We have used it on the high spec. Sako Bavarians. If the wood is rather light in colour use the dark version to bring out the darker hues. The address is Scherells oil, Eaves Hill Co., 225 Tyntersfield Rd, Blenheim 7276. The cost is twenty dollars includes post. Cheers, Gary.

    I would be careful about what I would apply to your stock given its value. As it already has a finish on it adding other finishing products may not be the best thing to do.
    I have used Birchwood Casey Wax which contains carnauba, beeswax and silicon. It gives a good waterproof finish and doesn't go milky like some raw oils. It is applied to existing finishes in my case stocks I have done with Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil.
    But, after saying all that I am not sure in all honesty I would recommend plastering it all over your nice stock.

    Suggest you get advise from someone like Stock Doktor Services Kevin Gaskill on*07 825 8742

    You could always just use wifey's Pledge and a duster I guess

    Scherrell's Schaftol was what Beretta NZ told the gun shop I bought a '85 Bavarian from. The shop got it for me, it may have even come from Beretta NZ, but it was some 4-5 years ago. It's available in NZ anyway.



    Boiled linseed progressively diluted with turps over many coats is for cricket bats and restored furniture... don't over oil the stock was the advise given.

    I've done a hand rubbed finish on an older oiled Sako stock with Tung oil diluted with turps, but it took months, and many coats.

    Schrell or balsin stock oil - suspect they might be the same. Workshop innovation have the latter

    You may find your Sako is finished with a polymerized oil similar to tru-oil that will have sealed it and traditional oils like boiled linseed will sit on top of the current finish, effectively doing nothing. Ask Sako directly what they finished the stock with
