I stained it and it looks pretty good a dark brown. My question is, do I use semi gloss or gloss clear coat? And how many coats?

I would vote for semi gloss, or even matte.
But different folks like different strokes.

Did mine with ‘boiled linseed oil’ 13 coats with a light sanding between each,, smooth as a babies bum,, not a gloss or semi gloss,, but looks great

I'm going semi gloss from a rattle can and wet sanding between coats.

If you are going to use your rifle, go with an oiled finish, as it is really easy to maintain and retouch.

One more vote for linseed oil, a base coat of stain is not a bad idea too. It's what i've done on my shooting mosin.
