Thank you for the tip.

Purified Boiled Linseed Oil, or Purified Raw Linseed Oil?

Also, what is the preferred method of cleaning the stock after I'm finished sanding?

Again, I used cold pressed, food grade Raw Linseed oil. As far as cleaning after you sand.....blow it off with compressed air and wipe it with LOMS (low odor mineral spirits) let that totally evaporate and start the oil finish process. I tend to oil it up and then sand with 600 grit wet and dry paper the first time or two. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wipe it off. The oxidation process begins and is of course temperature dependent. This all takes as long as it takes, it is a process you just can't rush. Sometimes I am a week or more between "coats". The stock will let you what it needs by the way it feels and smells. You really can't mess it up. If you don't like it, strip it and start over.

Thank you, MXLMAX

After much research, I've decided to put several coats of 100% Tung oil on it.
I should be able to oil up, and seal the stock sometime next weekend.

I test fit everything earlier today... so far - so good.

All parts except rear sight, front sight, castle, bolt stop, clip guide, op-rod spring, gas piston, are SA. parts new from tube or wrap. All parts are USGI even the pins that hold it together.

Gentlemen this is as close as you can get to an all SA.M14E2/A1... I call her....... THE TOP of the MARK











This rifle won M14 of the Month for July!

Thank you Sir, for the kind compliment. That rifle represents several years of looking for the parts and great expense.

I don't think I would do it again the parts cost too much even if it were possible to find them.

Ren

PS. The stabilizer is one of the hardest parts of the E2 to find, good luck.

oddly enough, they used to be the easiest, at least in this neck of the woods,

I'll get pics of mine up this evening or this week
