M1 Refinishing Question
Some of you who read the semi-auto thread may already know but my grandparents actually met in the Springfield Armory plant while making M1 Garands. Well, I'm going to pick one up (service grade) from the CMP program.
I was thinking it'd be cool/sentimental to sand the stock down, then have my grandmother (94 and still going very strong!) sign it, then apply the finish. My initial thought was have her use a black sharpie and then tru-oil but I'm certainly not a refinishing expert. Would this work/look good? If not, what would be a better way to accomplish this. Thanks.
