    If you are serious about doing this then you're looking for a true English gun stock oil - it typically contains linseed oil and carnauba wax.

    It takes MANY coats - the first ones will give a traditional flat finish (as you now have), as it builds up a surface coating of the carnauba - then this can be hand finished to a high gloss (as in 'hand rubbed').

    If you have trouble finding the oil send me a P/M - I have a source in the UK and can get it for you.

    I got good results with Tru-oil.

    First coat I'd put on straight out of the bottle. Dry and sand lightly.

    Second I'd mix with about 25% mineral spirits. Let dry and sand lightly.

    Third I'd mix about 50% mineral spirits. Let dry, sand lightly.

    Fourth I'd mix about 75% mineral spirits. By now you're only mixing about 1oz of the stuff - just enough to wet the stock down. Let dry, DON'T sand.

    Then I'd get the car buffer out with some nice polishing stuff - not the hard cutting stuff, but fairly mild car wax, and buff with a little bit of it. Buff off with a nice cloth.

    Easy as cake.
