  1. Realized I have never taken a pic of it...
    1941 Izzy
    All number stamped matching (even bayonet)
    Took acetone to the stock...stripped off old flaky varnish
    3 coats of minwax red mahogany...3 coats tung oil favorite Nagant
    Ex.cond barrel (about 98%





    Pics do it no justice...I'm not very good at pics!

    I like the color of that stock!

  3. M38 intrue M38 stock turned out about the same.
  4. +1

    And that leads to a question: why are laminated stocks in more demand than those of solid wood? Wood looks better than plywood, but are the lams more rare? What's the deal?

    Did the sights come white or did you do that?
  7. I did that with Brownell's laquer stik...good every color available.
  8. I picked up that exact same color to try on a couple of my stocks. I hope mine turn out as nice as yours did. I'm doing a Marlin Model 60 22 rifle right now. I'll give you guys some before and after pics when I "git er done" :wink: 8)
  9. Very very nice. I like it.

    I'm partial to the laminate stocks myself but that looks awesome.

    I love the way the contrast is on a laminate stock.
  10. Really really nice! I never thought of doing the sights with the paint stick, that makes a really nice rifle look that much better :)
