This is my Ruko Armscor M14-D .22. My parents bought me this gun back in 1992. I decided to take it out of the safe and give it the star treatment.

Before:


After:


Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks

I like it, bud--the lighter finish definitely shows off the checkering a lot better. My only concern would be water retention and dirt-resistance without a clear coat of some sort. But like you said...if it's just a fun-gun, you should be good to go.

Very nice! An oil finish will make it look superb. What scope did you put on the rifle?

Some guns wear light woods better than others and in my opinion you did a great job. Just make sure she gets a couple coats of clear sealer to protect that nice light wood.

Oh yeah... What scope is she wearing?

A boiled linseed oil finish will protect it alot better than a tung oil finish and still retain the lightness of the wood. You would not be sorry applying a handrubbed BLO finish. It's about the easiest thing you can do to a stock.
