Israeli wood?

What type wood was used on the Israeli fal hand guard and stock? What would be the best stain to refinish with and get the beech like color?

The early stuff was English walnut, and then they used Beech after that. The wood you have is likely already Beech.

I found plain old tung oil gives it that golden look best.

They used bees wax. Brand called Shoe Gear High Country bees wax works great . And good for any wood stock. Even G.I. garands ,carbines 1903's to. And leather!! Even protects metal finishs.

If you are talking about the wood on the DSA Israeli rifles I do believe they refinish them (varnish) so I would just leave them as is.
