    Hi all,

    I am looking to make a beech hamster for my air arms MPR. Does anyone know what the stain colour would be, or will it be a case of trial and error with some Danish oil.

    Hi Albione,

    Thank you, but understand if its a pain, don't worry.

    Need to work out what to make it from yet, looking for a piece of beech.

    Thanks S

    A decent piece of Walnut may be more suitable, when treated with a gunstock oil such as Alkanet the colour will be similar to the stock. Danish oil is not the best for this application.

    Thanks for the tip Jev, I will certainly look into this and have a scout around for a suitable piece.

    Albione I have sent you my number, looking forward to seeing pics.
