RESTORING A SANDED CARBINE STOCK


Recommended Posts

Someone sanded this 1944 M1 Carbine stock down to beautiful wood, but now it looks like a toy.

What do I use to return it to it's appropriate USGI WWII look?

Boiled Linseed oil?

 

fyi this is on a very intriguing cutaway that I bought from a dealer.

 

I'll post those pix on the correct forum

BLO was used by the military.I have a can of old GI issue BLO and used it on stock for 03,Garand,M1a etc.Most were stocks that had set for years and were bare wood.The M1a was a new replacement GI stock.

 

Can use Tung oil too,
