    I generally use tru-oil rubbed on with my fingers. Let it build up for glossy finishes and buff it with a car buffer and some polish for a gloss finish. However, if you have checkering or want a matte finish that doesn't work very well. http://forums2.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=167190 scroll down to the pictures and read that guy's post. it's short and sweet. And oh my he had 2 gorgeous rifles.

    BLO gives a nice oil finish and is much easier to apply. just be sure not to put either on too thick. It's much better to have to apply a 2nd coat than to have drips and runs.
