Hi I just purchased a Pro Sport from AGS and I ding my rifles a lot. I shoot them every day so they are in constant use. Up at the cottage in the bush they get used so I was wondering if anyone here uses a finish, oil, treatment etc. on there favorite stocks ?

So far it looks the best finish for the wood pieces is the Tung Oil....

But you need to be very patient to finish the process... The more coats you put you will get the more better final result and will cost you more time to finish.... I use it on my 46m grips and it's beautiful and looks long lasting...

Actually I did it twice as after I thought I finished and put it back on the gun then I noticed I forgot the little palm rest piece...

So the little piece costed me more time to finish as I tried to wait longer time between each coat ( more than 3 days), and put more layers of coats ( maybe 5 or 6 ) on it, and it did return me a more better final result....

Some people need to be careful with tung oil. It is a nut tree oil. Someone who is allergic to nuts cannot use or touch the stuff.

Oh yeah?!

This is a good reminder!! As I never heard that before.

There's only mentioned the Tung Oil is poisonous, and if you mixed it with other oil by mistake and use it for cocking, it will kill....

Almost anywhere you can buy minwax products.
I’m actually coating a project with it right now. Giant walnut rough swan fireplace mantle.

Do some sanding of the stock. You could sand it down to bare wood, or just break the surface finish with a 150-180-220 grit. Don’t go higher than 220. Try to reduce the scratches by sanding with the grain as much as possible.

Application, wipe on a liberal amount, keep it wet for 15 mins. If an area absorbs more than other, rewet that area. After 15 mins wipe off with a clean lint free cloth. Then buff with a new cloth. Let sit for 24 hours, sand/rub the surface with #000 steel wool to remove any lint/high spots/imperfections/etc, do another coat. Brush on liberal coat. Keep wet for 10 mins. Wipe off and buff. This time keep buffing till you’re satisfied with the finish. You can recoat if desired. The more coats and the more buffing the shiner it will become.
Downside is it is a true 24 hour dry. Often can’t rush it like other products. Really super nice finish tho. And easy. Smell is tolerable. Should last for years.

I will keep this as a reference if I go that far. Thanks again

Boiled linseed oil was another old favourite.
The old fashioned rate of application was once a day for a week, then once a week for a month, then once a month for a year. If you have an open grain you can gently sand with wet and dry between coats, the "slurry" will help to fill open grain which can trap whiskers on your face.

I have heard of that. I got my Pro sport yesterday. Looks beautiful with a stripped walnut grain. But it is raw and so today I will search for a Lowes near me I'm in Mississauga for the Tung Oil. I am not good at fixing things or stock treating. We just rubbed gun oil on our wood. It still looks like wax or just real shinny on a rim fire of mine.
So the Tung Oil seams simple enough.

AGS Air Gun Source was perfect.
Fast straight up service. Picked a nice wood for me. Travis got the package to me in a few days, no hick ups. I'll try and learn how to send pics.

Yeah ~ the Tung Oil treatment just simple enough with just one oil from the beginning to the end ~

And maybe you would like to get the steel wool (#0000) together with the Tung Oil from Lowes... Usually ppl won't have this in the house and you will need that between applying each coat... Maybe some sanding paper too....
