    Redo a rifle stock

    I posted this on an Aussie forum as per below.
    I wouldnt mind an input from the fellas in the know in the UK as well.





    My Mod 70 in .338 Win Mag could do with a bit of tlc and a good hand to do it.

    Anyone care to name any names that are good men when it comes to refurbishing a timber stock?


    There are plenty of scratches in the finish and I would be wanting an oiled finish.


    Throw some names if any please.Pref in Vic.


    And NO I wouldn't even contemplate a DIY job!

    With an address like that I`m sure he is a top man too,however see deerstalker.308`s post.

    I put it on here as there are many UK denizens that have links to the right men in this part of the world.

    If the post wasnt so prohibitively expensive it could go to a master in the UK.

    A few years ago I had a Sako stock sent to the US to be dipped in Moth Wing Orange which cost $60 one way...its worse going to the UK.

    Might not need to redo the finish. Maybe try a paste like "trade secret burnishing wax". Has a very fine abrasive like rotten stone. Rub it over stock, small area at a time avoiding the checkering. It will remove only the very slightest amount of finish- but will give you a fresh finish and wax it at the same time. Helps to restore some lustre to a dull stock if that's what you are aiming for
