Stock oil


Recommended Posts

Hi fellas,  I've recently acquired an np02, which is quite good for 300 quid, but the stock looks dry and dull. What is the best thing to put on it and which brands are best? The stock is walnut but it's really only a pistol shape so I won't need loads.

Cheers

just to be akward.................whatever you put ontop depends what you got on it in the first place.........if you have a sort of varnish on it (factory spec)....and you want to bring the colour up...then whatever you put on it wont penitrate the varnish..........

so start from the base and work up..............

A mix of Red Kite, Alknet Oil, Terebine Dryers and Boiled Linseed Oil. Add 20% Turpentine for the first few coats should you sand off the old coating.
A little Carnuba Wax will give it that English sheen.
Otherwise use any of the standard hardwood oils from B&Q ie Danish or Teak Oil.
