So recently I purchased a Benjamin 392, and frankly I was not impressed with the stock; the stain was uneven, and it was really rough. So I decided to refinish the stock. Here a pictures of the before and after product.

So first I used 600 grit sandpaper to take off the original stain. I then used minwax "gunstock" stain and put it on with a brush and then took it off with a rag so I could take off any excess stain. I then put on a second and third coat using the same process. After I let it sit for a while I put one coat of Verathane 1100 satin finish on it and let it dry for 3 hrs. I then rubbed on some wax to even everything out. Whole process only took about 5 hrs to complete
