That's a tough stock to get to look good with stain. It's going to splotch. If you are dead set on stain, mix up some gel stains and experiment a little. If you want to control the splotching, use some dyes instead of stain.

Still going to be harder to get a real good look, but you can get something that looks cool.

An example... had an old CM2 rifle that the stock was terrible on. Wanted something "different" so used some leather dye mixed with different amounts of alcohol. I call it "big red". Looks better than what it did.

You can get about any color you want with dye, and even put different "looks" into the wood where you want.

Good luck with it.
