    it has a nice bit of timber unsure what Walnut/Ebony? but it had been refinished(I think) with plasticy looking lacquer which I don't like on rifle stocks (personal preference) and much prefer an oil finish so that's what happened

    about 10 -12 coats with a light polish with ultra fine 0000 steel wool between coats to stop it getting too glossy photos don't do it justice I am really pleased with how it came out a little darker in colour than photos make out

    The oiled finish definitely looks the part over a gloss finish mate. Nice piece.

    Very nice! I used linseed oil once and the finish was ... Strange. Nice deep colours but it had a sticky finish. Yours looks much better!
