I took quite a bit off the forearm to get it to size
I used a Post War Stock and handguards as a model for measurements.

After everything was sanded I applied several hand rubbed coats of medium walnut Watco Danish oil (available at Lowes, paint stores ,etc)
Applying the first coat with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper rubbing the oil into the stock with the sandpaper lightly.
I let it set for 10 minutes or so keeping the stock wet with the Watco oil during this time.
I then wiped off excess and let dry. Next day applied and handrubbed in another thin coat (no sandpaper)
Repeated next day
