Received a 1974 FWB300S from a nice guy. It works great but the stock had many minor dings and scratches. Saw my friend YepYep refinished his FWB300SU with great results, I decided to give it a try today.
I sanded down the original finish with 80 grid sandpaper, then 220 grid, then 320 grid finally 400 grid.
Then the stifling in the grip area was coating with black stain. Finally, two coats of Antique Oil were applied then rubbed dry. Here is the result, I am quite pleased.

I think yours would be more water repelling than mine. That shiny stuff must be varnish. As for colour, I used minwax Antique Oil, I think you used Tung Oil.

Light skin or dark skin they are both beautiful!
I am inspired to take on my newest wood stock, maybe freshen it up a little or a lot.

They both looks great, however I do favour more than 2 coats of oil. After allowing each coat to harden fully, usually 24 to 48 hours will do,
then another and another thin coat, then if wanting the grain filled, sand with 1500grit wet/dry (dry) "just' down to the wood's surface, then
if it needs more coats to fill the grain, do it, then when all the pores are filled. 3 VERY thin coats and it's done - like a grande piano.
Otherwise, a simple 4 to 6 THIN coats and it's done and quite well sealed. 2 coats of oil will not seal the stock, imho. As well, for a gun that is used a
bunch, your hands will wear the finish off the wrist and forend if the finish is too thin. imho

I am still working on my PS stock... However it's likely in a 'fine tuning' process as I check it every day under the bright light, and turn around the stock slowly at every direction and try to find out if at any spot that the light reflection were not flowing evenly and smoothly, I rub another thin coat of pure tung oil or Minwax tung oil with varnish or the mixture of these two stuff I have in the house on that or a few spots, then put it back to the table vise to let it dry and repeat it the next day...

To my experience so far, sometimes sanding is necessary (to be honest, I don't trust the striper and the ironing method very much...), and sometimes varnish is necessary too because it can form a nice protection layer on the wood surface which is purely water resistant. And how to control the shiny glossy piano like reflection surface result will be another question.

Just my two cents from a self-learning student to refinish stocks....

I do light fine grit wet sanding in between coats makes a nicer finish in my experience, you need to have a lot of patience.

Just sanded down the slight roughness with 800 grit sandpaper then another thin coat of Antique Oil. I guess this will be an ongoing process. I can see myself adding coats from time to time for better durability.Image
