I got the rifle refinished and ready for the range. I stripped to old finish and refinished with 9 coats of tru-oil. After the last coat I rubbed it down with pumice and got it to a semi-gloss finish. After 3 coats of Johnsons Paste Wax I ended up with what you see. I am by no means a pro woodworker but I can tell myself it looks better than it did. I added a recoil pad and a new Vortex 3-9x scope. I cant wait to see how it shoots.
