Thread ressurrection here.
I have a Yugo Kar98. The stock is in pretty good condition, and has a really nice grain pattern. However, it is a bit swelled. I'm looking at sanding it just enough to smooth the grain, and then oiling it.
I do not want a shiny finish. I have been told to use boiled linseed oil.
Will the linseed oil give me a dull, natural finish? Will it damage the blued metal parts?
