well i purshased an old cz601 last year, but the stock had white dull patch and was bad strached. I was unsure on what to do, i have seen and read lots of ways in how to rernish my stock.
so i decided to buy a kit to re-do my stock.
first i sanded(coarse grit) the main parts down, removing the old varnish and taking it back to the bare wood, the areas with checkering i taped off while sanding the rest.
I brought a cheap paint stripper which i used on the checkering, took about 3 treatments and the use of a soft wire brush for these parts.
once i had removed all the old varnish, i started to use finer sand paper working up to glass paper and the fine steel wool.
These came in the kit i purchased, which a birchwood casey kit of ebay.
I put 2 coats of the walnut stain on
then 3 coats of tru-oil
and 2 coats of stock sheen/conditioner. i used the steel wool to light sand between these coats.
i also purchased birchwood casey wax, of which i have put 3 coats on., just simply rub on and allow to dry, then polish
Im really pleased with the finish and in total cost about 20 pounds.
well hope this info is usefull
ps sorry about the ironing board lol
