Pictures heavy, so I put the post here and again, I always like to see the stunning photos from the Airgun Gallery~

Well.... I have this not-too-young-lady in the house with some dents and chips on the black finished stock with some dumb spots.... Have been looking for a good looking new stock for a while however it's very hard to find and super expensive to get... Anyway it's just a HW30, not a HW97/TX200/Pro Sport etc highend rifles...

So, after working on some pistol grips..... I thought I maybe able to do the 'similar' job on this 'a little bigger' 'grip' piece.... I followed the information and instructions I found from Google, forums and YouTube, added some creations and used the simple resource I have in the house to finish it....

Actually it's not finally done yet as I still waiting for a Bisley adjustable butt pad from the UK and want to give some more drying time for the new oil finishes....

Okay~ pictures time!! From the beginning to the latest ones I just took this morning... Next time will be with everything back together and the new butt pad~

Hey YepYep, that's a nice looking finish.
Can't wait to see pictures of it reassembled. I like the chromed barrel and action look, in a nicely finished stock even more. I'm not keen on the blackline look, reminds me of synthetic stocks.
So I think your HW30 will be sweet!

Actually I never even put the barrel together with the stock to check what it looks like yet..... Not very sure about a silver matt finish barrel and action with a traditional style/color and piano look stock... Hope it looks good...

And the second thing I am worry about it the shiny finish won't last long and get dumb easily with hand touches... So just want to give as longer drying as I can to hope the tung oil really give out a hard finish as described... I don't want to make it a wall display only airgun as it shoots so well...

If you've given it enough time between coats of oil so that each coat hardens properly, it will not finger mark.
Looks good sitting in the daylight.
How many coats of oil?

It looks nice! I don't have the patience to do this, you can surely wait. By the time your buttpad arrives, I am sure the paint would be dry. Can't wait to see it put back together.

Maybe 6 coats... I am lazy... So after 320 grits sandpaper I applied the first heavy coat... (Before tung oil, two layers of stains as the result was not very satisfying after the first stain) Then 400 wet sand paper with second coat... Then 0000# steel wool on the imperfect spots I found out with my hand touchings before applying next coat ... At least over night or a full day of dry time between coats.... From the very beginning (first sanding on Feb.29), it's more than a month to now...

I found with tung oil, even thin coats, at least 24 hours between coats was necessary, 48 hours for the first one.
This stock was finished by me in 1986. It is still quite nice. True Oil was the oil, but a similar finish (I think better) is
done with Tung Oil. This stock was rubbed back, with pumice (rotten stone) after finishing, to get a glow, instead of
a brilliant shine. To this day, the finish is the same - unmarked by hands or time, with a few bruises here and there.
Good to see you stained it with a walnut stain. Beech's blonde wood needs something.

That's a nice one and give me much confidence on my finish!

And so, due to the not enough dry time in the previous coats (maybe one of two coats had enough dry time as I was busy on other things and left it aside for more time than other coats), I think I will need much extra longer time for it since now... I watched a YouTube said in some conditions, you might need months foe it to completely dried and hardened.... It's okay as I think the new butt pad will be here maybe two weeks later....

And you are right, actually I looks can feel the finish was still a bit 'soft' after over night or a full day being set aside... And it's about 3 days after my last coat and I took the new pictures this morning, and it feels much better~

Yeah! I feels lucky to get this walnut wood stain from Amazon and felt worry about the end result as it's the first time I use wood stain ~ finally it turns so nice! The beech wood really looks too plain without dying~

And the second lucky thing is there is no checkering on the HW30 stock~ [emoji38] [emoji38]

If you put a coat on too quickly, without the last one completely hard, it will take a LONG time for the finish to harden.
If there are a few coats over a "green" (not dry and hard) coat, it may never harden properly to where fingers leave no mark.
