With the poor condition of stocks on the latest batch of Garands, CMP has started using Hackberry stock. These stocks have a very poor finish and don’t look very good. Now I have been doing stock work for over 30 years and have worked with many types of wood, but Hackberry is not one of them. I would like to come up with a nice finish that would look good on these new Hackberry stocks, but the problem is, I don’t have any Hackberry stocks to work on. This is what I’m willing to offer. I will take in two stocks to refinish at no charge. That’s right, I will do the stocks for free. All you will need to do is pay shipping both ways, I’ll cover the cost of the finish. I will do one with Chestnut Ridge and the other with another type of dye. How does this sound?
