    Hello fellow rossi gurus look at my ROSSI 92 I am happy with her.

    Rossi 92 .357 20" barrel I refinished the stock in tung oil to get a nice sheen and bring out the grain.

    If I may ask how you took off the factory finish? Thanks, I like it and have been considering doing mine.

    I actaully just wiped down the stain that the rossi had on with mineral spirits a couple times this in turn at first anyways lightened up the finish. I knew though that tung oil will darken it a bit with time and additional coats. So after some very light sanding where needed and one more mineral spirits rubing let it dry. I started hand rubbing with fromby's tung oil low gloss used steel wool lightly in between coats of the tung oil. It is a tung oil varnish mix I have used on other stocks very easy to apply follow the directions for drying times. I ended up with 7 coats alot of rubbing and she has that sheen to her and if it ever gets dull just rubb another coat into the wood and good as new love oil based finishes. the wood looks so good.

    The main thing is take your time. use the correct fit screw drivers. I used very fine wool OOOO and super fine sand papers you don't want to remove material only smooth it I used up to 800 and 1000 grit wet dry sand paper. The smoother you make the wood the better the grain come out and the higher the sheen you will have. Whatch the edges to. If you take your time you can get great results. Another great finish is true oil if you have that hand rubb it and you will love it as well.
