    Just got around to taking some pics of my Mossberg trainer from CMP. Not bad for a rifle from 1944 . All I did was wipe down the metal with some Rem Oil and cleaned up the stock with mineral spirits and gave it a coat of Fairtrimmers Ox stock finish

    Nice rifle, love them old Mossies. Where do you get the Ox finish, and is it like linseed oil, or does it "float" like Tru-Oil?

    Yes Sir, 22 long rifle. I'm ashamed to admit I havent made it to the range with her yet. Hopefully this weekend. Plus I should have my USAF M16 clone put together by then. The lower should be in tomorrow :D

    Thanks for the link. I cleaned and stripped my M-44US, and recoated in BLO, but that birch stayed very pale blonde. I like the tint that your finish has and I am afraid to try and stain the birch.

    Even though the stock was clean I scrubbed it with oderless mineral spirits and steel wool first, Then let dry overnight before applying the finish
