Default Finished my Dupage Tiger Striped Stock Set

Picked one up for $150 before they raised the price to $175, which was a steal with hand guards and some metal. Still a great price IMO. I stained it with a Minwax mixture of two different stains, then put a coat of BLO every day for two weeks. The shine is the Howard’s Feed & Wax for the photo so it’s not as shiny finish as it appears. Replaced the CMP wood on my Winchester Service Grade.

Some people get turned off by a well cared for stock considering it "Non GI looking" but there are veterans stories out there from guys that worked, boned and put much care into their own rifles. On occasion guys were recognized for it during inspection and told "nice rifle". One party reported being made LCPl on the spot by Brute Krulak because his M14 stock was so well cared for.

Sure active operations probably didnt allow those pretty stocks to stay pretty but given their choice guys that were attached to their weapons wanted to make them look well cared for.

when I had the key to the arms room in the National guard (1953) I did My M-1 Carbine and the 1ST Sgt.s stocks over.Cleaned them up and rubbed several coats of BLO on them.They stood out from the others in rack.
