But I think it will be very nice to shoot.
Well, if it isn't, I'll just give it a good spanking. :evil: :mrgreen:
The wood looks so nice those diamonds are so pretty.
And so was the bloody price! It's looking nicer now that I have given it a good wax job with my favourite Liberon Black Bison wax polish. Smells good too. ;)

Hi Mack The Knife,

I always admired your gun stock and found it to be amazingly beautiful and well finished. After reading the the complete post and seeing the pictures u have posted understood what makes the gun so different. Every one must have already told u thats a great job. Bit I still cant resist saying that its the best job I have ever seen......and the post teaches a lot too - to every gun lover.

Thanks, AC.

There are two things that I couldn't do though - completely steam out a deep dent an freshen up the chequering.

Mack The Knife,

Irrespective of the fact that you were unable to steam out a dent....the finish is exceptional.

Mack The Knife,
I have read this article a number of times and each time i feel that its a very well done job.

One thing that i feel might improve this article.
At the start maybe you can include -

List of tools required.
List of Commodities. (eg - Cat paint remover, sand paper of grit ... )etc etc)

you can keep adding to them as you use new ones.
Just a thought.

Lovely article.

Hi Mack The Knife,

I have followed this article...read it n number of times....I have been working on making a modified stock for a frends 22 IOF rifle. Well the stock has been modified and made a bit less bulky. But now I need your help in the color. I was wanting to give it a walnut finish .for which i normally use a asian paints wood color stain but the friend wants a green color stock . Have tried using the asian paints color stain but thats too light green ...any idea how could it be made darker in color.Will post the pictures soon ...of course these are not as detailed as your work is...

Mack The Knife,
In case we are not able to get our hands on Birchwood.... products (which is very likely in India) will Furniture polish do a good job or is there an alternative Indian solution to this problem.

What i do for furniture is sand it down well till it shines and then give around 6 - 8 coats (depending on my mood) of polish and then finally top it off with some coconut oil on a soft cloth.

your comments please.

the way we can make the colour of stock by just using black stain .
or we need to do something extra for jet black stock.

If you want to oil finish your Mod 2 Brno stock, try to keep it close to original.It will have a good effect and keep the value untouched.Dont make it into a disco gun... :lol:

That, is the most detailed and interesting restoration technique on a gun stock. Can't wait to try it out on my A5. Time to look around for supplies.

Mack The Knife,
I know I am replying to an old post, but thanks.

Since I am going for a similar project, this is helpful.

Thanks

You can use dyes to stain the wood. Once you do that though, you will have to use a water based clear topcoat. You can seal it with gloss or satin poly after that.

See this post on rimfirecentral on coloring stocks.
