    I've done several Daystate stocks now.

    The two pack finish sometime takes a bit of removing. So you may have to have several goes with the Nitromors to get all the old finish off. But it is well worth the effort.

    Remember you need a perfect finish on the wood before you even consider applying any gunstock oil to it.

    Napier London Gunstock finish and CCL both work very well. Just make sure you apply them sparingly and let them dry totally between applications. Otherwise you end up with a sticky mess.
