Any stock finishers out there. Not that it makes a difference, I have a Sako rifle with an oil finish stock. The rifle/stock is a few years old but has not been out in the weather and is like new. This is the first time I've had an oil finished stock and don't know what is the best way to take care of it. Do I add an additional coat of stock oil? If so, what kind or brand? The stock seems to be in need of some care, like it seems poris to me. What would you suggest? I would like to seal the pores of the wood, more protection...thanks for any help/suggestions... gene

GE- Are you sure it is a real oil finish or simply a dull conventional finish? I would be very surprised to find any factory gun with a linseed oil finish. A finish like Tru Oil is not a true oil finish.

A direct answer to your question would be a light coat of stain (Min Wax penetrates well) and then a few coats of a non oil finish like True Oil. Or, a coat of automobile wax may satisfy you.
