Question Rossi model 62 Burl wood?



Log in to see fewer ads
I never seen this kind of wood before on a rifle let alone a Rossi. Can anyone confirm if this is some type of burl wood?

Well, I'm certainly no expert but it does appear to be!!

In any case it sure is nicely grained...............

SRV1,

I have been told that Rossi, sometimes, uses a Brazillian hardwood of some sort. Here is my Model 92, after the black goo was stripped off of it, and Tru-Oil was rubbed in:

Looks good! Yeah they use some kind of toner which hides the real grain. I'm debating to refinishing it so you can see more of the grain.

retired3100,

I bought the rifle from its original owner, and he had already stripped the factory color from the wood. I believe that he used a liquid stripper, like "Strip- Eze". He applied Tru-Oil, after the dark color was off of it.
