Did you apply it with a cloth or palm it on with warm hands?

Initially with my hand then over a few days built it up with a cloth.
It really does bring the grain out in the wood.Its not a top grade stock but it still look very nice as you can see.

A pity you did not try to lighten the join where the small extension has been added.
As you say, not top grade but it looks fine and even better now you have refinished it.
I should get round to re-doing a couple of mine at some time and as a project I want to strip the varnish of an old .410 Beech stock and polish it up properly!
Nice work Simon. What make of gun is it?
I've used Birchwood Casey Gunstock Oil in the past. I hope to be starting another wee project soon and need to get new oil, I might have a look at this stuff too.

Made in London 1934 with a Birmingham nitro proof 1954-89.It needed some attention as the wood was quite heavily scratched but after a few weeks stripping,wet and dry rubbing,oiling and refinishing it looks a tidy job even though I say so myself..

Certainly looks good, well done.
As you know, the sear and the intercept notch on the tumbler remain the principal weaknesses in the A&D design through the vulnerability to sudden wear in older guns in which the surface treatment of the steel breaks down. Regular inspection is an essential precaution, and any malfunction, however, slight or temporary, should be addressed immediately.Michael
