Default Rifle re-work / stock (one way, anyway) ...

Prepping for hunting season; maintenance on some hardware. Stock re-finish, and re-Park hardware. Custom built for gramps in '69 (still have build receipt ).

30.06, Mauser bolt action, semi-octagonal barrel...







Stock re-finish is Poly, about thinned to about 50 / 50 with Paint Thinner, THEN mixed with Polyglass / MEK hardener. Thinned Poly allows 'sheeting' - bubbles pop, 'sags' from paintbrush lay flat. 3 parts Poly / thinner, 1 part polyglass epoxy.

Within an hour of laying on Poly, touch your brush (or paper towel) to the 'drip', Yellow circle, to draw it off. Re-check again @ 2 hrs, or so...


... and I had to re-Park the hardware. Hope the deer like it...

If you like that look it looks nice. It looks like it will protect the wood well.
