Interesting. It looks like you did a great job. I've thought about refinishing the stock on my 91/30, but I tend to like the dark reddish colors. My stock is already dark as it is, but I wonder how much of that is the natural wood color. Does anyone know a stain or oil I could use that would give me a nice reddish color and enhance the grain?
I've seen some m44's with almost a "Tiger stripe" look, and i think it's awesome.
Edit: Sirsloop's refinish looks very nice. I wonder if I could get something similar with a dark red stain vs ebony. http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...5&postcount=15
