    Time. I have lot's of time. Time to look up 'stuff' out of curiosity or necessity.

    Looking up TruOil I found this;

    " Tru-Oil' is made from a mixture of 56% mineral paint thinners, 33% oil varnish and 11% linseed or Tung oil. The exact specification of the components are, of course, a trade secret."

    At $14.99 for 3 oz.!!!!No effin' way! A quart of mineral thinners is 5 bucks, 8 oz. of varnish is $9. and tung oil 14 $ for 8 oz. Mix my own for a fraction of the price.

    Danish oil, It is just equal parts of a resin(varathane), a thinner(citrus solvent) and a drying oil.(tung, linseed, etc). I have all the ingredients to mix up most anything except for resin. I will be out today and look for a good one. Stir up a batch of Bob's Best and practice on whatever is laying about.

    If anyone asks what is the hardest or most time consuming aspect of putting one of these rifles together, tell them 'the stock'. These Terni items look good coming out of the wrap but then, when you decide to add a finish! Those sneaky Italians douse the wood in a dark walnut stain that wipes off or runs at the first sign of anything(insert favorite Italian Army joke here) liquid touching them. I have washed this one down and lightly sanded it to get rid of all the raised fibers that have popped up after 40+ years in a paper wrapper. (see previous post photo). The walnut is quite porous and will need a good fill/finish/sanding to get it sealed. This is where the time consumption comes into place. I have mentioned the tiger striped rear handguard and how it has received numerous coats of oil finish over the past year or so. It has just had another wipedown with the Danish Oil. It then gets a 0000 steel wool buffing (again). It is as smooth as glass but it still gets the rubdown. ( possible OCD) This stock set is not the most expensive by any means but... it will have the best finish and polish of any in the armoury! Tuesday morning the rest of the stock set will start to come to life!

    947 ml will last you forever. I have used Behr Tung Oil (very similar) on many projects and the can just keeps on giving.

    Here it is, 3 coats last night before wiping down and waiting till this morning to continue.


    Hard to notice but this is wet sanding with 220 grit paper and more Danish Oil to work up a slurry to help fill the open pores of this stock. Lots of time as mentioned previously. Another couple of hours needed for wiping, sanding, waiting,continue....!



    Here's another decision/choice for youse' folks. Butt plate, used reparked P.B. from years gone by or a new manufacture piece?

    I'd go for the new one. This rifle is going to look better than new. Why spoil it with a scuffed up butt 😂
