After 3 years,I decided to refinish the stock. I never liked the factory finish,which 'hid' the grain and had to much of a glossy look.I stripped the factory finish using steel wool,then lightly sanded the stock. I used Formby's Tung Oil and rubbed in several coats to get finish I prefer...more of a 'subtle' non-glossy finish..with more grain showing..Pic of stock before re-finish..Posted ImageStock after finishing with Formby's Tung Oil...Posted Image

That is a good looking job. Much more professional looking than the factory one. :signs1242cn:

crazyhorse,Your refinish definitely looks better than the factory original.Might have to try that with my marauder. Remove those laser scratches and the BENJAMIN then sand it all down and break out the checkering tools for some simple 16 line checkering. Maybe a little epoxy bedding. Hey, while I'm daydreaming here this all seems easy and fun. :roflmao3[1]:

it was easy..just take your time..the factory finish was darker,more glossy that I like..I first tried this on my 1975 Sheridan stock...it came out great...If you use Formby's like I did, just rub it in using about 3-4 coats with a clean rag as applicator....then let stock set to dry for about 12 hours..one thing I like is it is very easy to maintain..any new scratches can be fixed easy..Here is my Sheridan after refinishing...Posted Image
