Linseed oil is great stuff to keep a stock in shape. You do find some old guns that have the wood all ugly and black but that is due to not being treated with linseed oil. Thats dirt and really nasty abuse with dino oils as in oil the stock with the gun oil or too much cosmoline. The wood is finished with BLO cut with spar varnish and a small amount of bees wax. Tung oil is just a more moderen version of the origianl oil finish that is close to the original oil they used then is all.
