I refinish wood and I bought this European Walnut from KEV as a defective piece well it was very nice I sanded it out and here is the first coat of stain and Oil this morning it looks darker and the flash gives it a orange hue which it is not. First time picture posting so I hope it works.Thanks Rick

Can't wait to see the finished rifle! What type of stain and oil did you use on that beautiful stock?

I used Chestnut Ridge Military stain and Im on the 5th coat of boiled linseed oil rubbed [buffed] in. I have tried all the ways and now profesionally do it this way because of the ease or reapir if you nick it or scratch it. The finish is really nicer than clear or any kind. I will post the finished pictures if it is done tonight or tomorrow I hope. Thanks Rick B.

Thanks for the tip. I'm refinishing an R1 right now using Minwax special walnut and tung oil and it doesn't look as nice as yours. Where can I get Chestnut Ridge military stain? I'll post a pick of my R1 when it's finished as well. This will be my first refinishing job so I'm sure your's will win the beauty contest!

I think there web page is www.Chestnutridge.com (http://www.Chestnutridge.com) they have a $5.00 4oz bottle. I buy it buy the gallons. I normally do M1 Garand and Carbine stocks but take on any stock that I feel safe with. Thanks Rick B.

I can't view the pic, but I've used it on my Garands, as well as an Izzy HB stock set that I believe Jeter might presently own. Last night I used it on my shovel and axe handle, followed by boiled linseed. I think I have an illness.

Not an illness.
Just good taste.
...and that Izzy furniture shore is purty!

I really impressed myself with the inletting of the rear swivel mount. Then I F-ed it up when I cleared it out internally. Oh well, can't see that anyhow with the sling installed there. Some black tinted bondo or fiberglass resin in the bottom of that hole would be a nice finishing touch.
Are you using them on anything, or just fondling them? It'll make you go blind!
