Those PM booklets were/are filled with much useful information for vehicles, radios, weapons system, field gear etc... Years ago I bought a complete "library" of these from a guy. I still have them with complete yearly sets beginning in the mid to late 1950's into the late 1980's. These came out monthly and each year had an Index issue. The ones from the 1950's are rather uncommon today. The Vietnam War era years have some great articles and information.

I enjoy reading those instructional cartoons. I'm sure the attractive lady got the interest of young GIs.

Iíve used current boiled linseed on stocks before and never got gummy. Is it possible that todayís boiled linseed is different then the 50ís and earlier boiled version? Additives, different process?

Same here. The one exception is when it's applied to sealed stock, but RLO gums up on those too. Some people apply stain like Minwax to stocks for color and that stuff has a sealer in it that seals the grain. If you apply more about 1-1/2 coats of BLO or RLO the stock will not take up the oil.

BLO and RLO are not interchangeable. BLO is mostly used because it is easy to find. RLO is not in the box stores and you have to go to a real paint shop.
You can but any number of coats of RLO over RLO. As the PM says. Put it on with fingers and wipe off excess, wipe hard. When you wipe off excess it does not gum up.
You can not put RLO over BLO. BLO will dry and seals the top of the wood and RLO can not soak in to replace the minerals in the wood. If you put RLO over BLO, you can wipe RLO back off or us a thinner to aid in wiping it off. This is why you never use BLO on a Carbine stock.
Now BLO does give a good looking finish to the wood. It's just not GI.

Well, said! Glad to see experienced folks like yourself sharing your knowledge. Thank you.
