    Try the aerosol True Oil, one quick pass (in one direction) will avoid the problems that you are having. Brownells stocks it..

    Good Luck

    I finished two or three stocks recently using Woodstock's method. The cheap Rem 581 stock turned out very nice and the walnut stocks look like handrubbed furniture. I no longer brave the elements that much so I don't require the thick stuff like the factory finish.

    I just read the whole article on Woodstocks finishing methods, looks like I'll alter my finishing methods now. Good article, thanks for posting!

    I have re-finished several rifle stocks with Tru-Oil. I use a cheese cloth to apply super thin coats on the rifle. Each coat dries in about 8 hours.
