    parker hale rifle stock

    a good while back there was a post on refurbing a stock can any one remember who it was im currantly in the process of sanding down the stock and cant remember if the person used a stain or rifle stock oil on it can any one help

    I did one quite a while back and used walnut oil on it. Came out quite nice but I don't have any pics (and have sold the rifle).

    The photos dont show the stock brilliantly, but it wasnt a particularly interesting piece of wood but i tarted it up with a forend tip, grip cap and some home made ebony and brass crossbolt covers (all inspired by the Larry Potterfield youtube video tutorials) and finished it with a sanded in finish using undiluted tru oil and up to 800 grit sandpaper and i think the finished rifle looks really nice. Unfortunately this it the only photo i have of the finished product and im currently away from home so cant upload any better pics. The only thing i can add to this is when i took it to the local RFD to be valued he thought it was a Sako, he was most disappointed when i told him it was a 28 year old parker hale.
    Hope this helps and good luck with your project.

    is there a spacifice walnut oil that you use

  8. #8
    first off i would stain with either root oil or lions walnut spirit stain then seal with a grain sealer then i would use english walnut oil preperation every day but use only a little rub into stock then rub hard and fast to build heat it needs this to work properly and keep doing it then after a few weeks go to once a week then once a month and it will build up over time, I am about to start on a brand new parker hale stock for my 270, atb wayne

    Done a couple now
    pictures aren't great

    I stain and oil
    even a cheap Wickes dark Oak or Walnut can be tailored to deliver much lighter and darker shades with layering

    use grain sealer, best thing I learned about
    when you think it is a fine finish, keep going!
    I use 1200-1500grit as a finish

    use an old toothbrush to apply stain, oil etc to chequering, paper towels and cloths leave fibres

    the old folk lore says oil once a day for a week, once a week for a month and then once a month for a year
    you can overoil. do not be tempted to speed the process up
