I took a peer from work to the LGS this afternoon to look at some Mosin Nagants they had on display. He'd been saying he wanted to buy one and refinish it. Well, when I left the gun shop I was the proud owner of a M91/30 Mosin and my friend left empty handed. Can you say "alligator mouth and tadpole rear-end"? Any how, now I want to get this thing looking good and I want to re-finish the stock to start. Only problem is I've never been any good at refinishing anything wood related. Anyone have a sure proof method for refinishing stocks, or recommendations on DIY material? I assume this stock, unless it's made from some super secret outer-space wood, would be treated like any other stock being refinished.
