I am going to buy an unfinished dark walnut wooden fore arm to replace the stock one.

1. It is designed for the new P1322 pumper, I can re-use the screws to fix it nicely without any trouble to mod a 2289 fore arm to fit

2. Wider body and better feel of it make it definitely a great upgrade on the gun

3. I don't like the finished version from the website as it just not my tea although it's ready to use with a much cheaper price than adding necessary stuff to get it finished

But the problem is here.... I am not a wood worker at all... my only experience in painting a wood piece was brushing my IKEA chair for kids... and from YouTube they only showed me how to deal with the flat wood piece, not a pumper fore arm...

I plan to use Danish oil. As it is the best looking finish for a hardwood piece... but for my purpose, I am not sure is a good idea or not... I am not sure if it's durable, long lasting, weather resisted, temperature friendly... etc for a fore arm...

Any thought about it??

I used Watco Danish Oil on many of the knife handles I made. Put a heavy coat on the wood and let it sit for 15 - 20 minutes. I would then hand rub the finish until it felt, more-or-less, dry. You can apply another coat and do the same thing if necessary. Provides a durable finish. RC

Thanks RC!! But I want to make sure two coats is good enough?! I saw people in YouTube use about 3 coats and then 600 grit sad paper re-sand it with the oil again, and then another 2 coats... And between each application let the wood piece sit for 4 to 8 hours... but the shiny final finish is awesome!! (the first coat is heavy, the others are lightly)

While you rub it, use 100% cotton cloth and never use the micro-fiber cloth, right?
