Tru Oil looks like a variation of Tung Oil with some addititives. I have read some reviews and it look pretty nice. The only negative it how it covers checkering but that was only from one guy. Tung Oil, Tru Oil, Formby's ~ all are pretty much the same so I am sure it would make for a wonderful looking stock ~ with good prep work and about 10~12 coats.
I'll check Academy for the oil(s) and give it a whirl. Not sure what grit of sand paper to start and finish with. As it is, I've applied 7-8 coats of Tom's 1/3. The stock is looking much better but not as nice as the picture I found.
I should have taken a "before" picture. The stock came out of the box with some funky, drab, and dull coating.
I haven't shot the rifle yet. It's the 24", stainless, octo barrel, 357mag/38spl, Rossi M92. I have a load of ammo I'm itching to run through. If I like it, I'll send it down to Steve Gunz for an action job.
Anyway, it's sanded and stained. First coat of oil is going on in a few minutes. Going to let it sit til tomorrow before I touch it up and oil it again. Will apply several coats. Tom's 1/3 did a nice job, but I want that baby to shine. If I'm not happy with it, I'll strip it and try it again. I can always go back to Tom's if the results aren't what I want.
