Thank you. The stock is factory but I refinished it with TruOil. The stock has been glass bedded. It'll shoot into 1/2" at 50 yards but it's really picky about what ammo it likes.

Beautiful looking rifle! Do yourself a favor and install the Volquartsen target sear and spring (if the trigger is still stock). That one simple part (installs in 5 minutes) will clean up the trigger real nice. Clean, crisp trigger at about 1.5#. A great investment for under 50 bucks, delivered! :t

How many coats of TruOil did you use? I just finish sanded a custom 10/22 stock today and have rubbed in 5 coats of true oil so far. It is just barely starting to take a shine. I'd love for it to come out like yours when finished. That is a sexy rifle.

Hi Kokiak,
I think it was about 12 coats. For the first few coats I'd let the oil dry for 36 hours and then lightly sand it until i was almost back to bare wood. Then use the same procedure but use OOOO steel wood until the gloss was gone for about 3 coats. I let the last three coats build up and when thoroughly dry use a good rubbing compound. Birchwood Casey works fine.
The secret is not to put on another coat until the current coat is PERFECTLY smooth.
Goodluck with your stock and be patient.

Usually I stay away from the checkering unless it's damaged. If finish is needed in the checkering I use tung oil thinned a little with mineral spirits.
Thanks for the comments guys.
