Read about a method of refinishing gun stocks using TruOil and Armor All. Sounded pretty simple and saw pictures of fantastic results, so thought I'd try it out on the old dingy looking Marlin 336. It had a muddy finish that had some sort of clear coat that was cracking and peeling off. Well, have to say it works pretty well. The ol "thurty thurty" is lookin good now.

That looks great Bird!
From the pics, it looks like a hand rubbed oil finish. Did it take long to apply?

It's easy as pie, just spray some Armor All on your stock, wipe it off (not in) and apply 2 fingers worth of TruOil and rub it in with your fingers and then switch to your palm and rub it in briskly. You'll get some heat generated and the T/O is dry for that coat. The Armor All makes the TruOil set up quick and you can apply a dozen or more coats while watching a movie. If you dork up a coat, it's easy to correct and get going on more coats.
Here's the link to the thread with all the info you'll need.
