    One more stock in the process of refinishing. This one is from a model 60, sanded down to bare wood and a few coats of Minwax "Gunstock" stain, the grain looks pretty good. I will finish with Tung Oil, several coats over the next week or so.

    That is pretty. What color stain did you use. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    The stain really brought out the grain in it. Going to look even more pronounced after the Tung oil is applied.

    Good job Matt...

    Was reading up on my 1980's Glenfield Marlin Model 60...seems it was made from Birch too !!

    Still in great shape for an 1980 firearm...the wood is perfect.
