Well, ..didn't like the finish on my ASE Gold,..sooo, off it went.
Classic hand rubbed oil finish ( open-pore ).
I sent the stock off to Cole's last year and they installed the B-Fast comb hardware ( I think every trap-gun should have an adj comb).
I think it turned out well...I think ...will probably go up for sale in the next few weeks.... too many guns and not enough women in my life
Ditch the truoil & linseed. Try the real stuff as in Tung oil. Google real milk paint company. They sell 100% pure. Start out at 4 parts mineral spirits to 1 part tung oil then 3-1 finish with 2-1. Reacts with O2 to form a hard protective coating that is completely waterproof. Using your fill the grain technique you can make it look like you could reach your hand in.
