Sometimes the hardest step is the first one. Watch a couple of youtube videos, get the old finish stripped, sand very lightly with very fine sandpaper, or a very fine sanding sponge. Then, wipe on a finish if you like, then grab a can of simple Formby's Tung Oil, and start rubbing in coats of it not letting it run, pool, drip, etc. Go slow and stop when it looks like you want it to.

You may be looking for a more refined approach, but doing it as above, it's not permanent. You can start over as your skills improve. For some reason, and I may have read into your post, but it seems you're more of a 'function' over 'form' kinda guy who doesn't need the prettiest firearms in camp.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
