I used 5 layers of non-colored tung oil, and 3 layers of Scherell stock oil in “Classic Dark”. First tung, then Scherell, tung, Scherell, tung, Scherell, tung and tung. In that order. Apply thin layers each time, let it dry for about an hour, get some 0 steel wool to rub the excess oil out (ever so slightly), and repeat the proces after each layer. But I must admit, it all depends on the wood. Experiment on a piece of walnut, if you’ve got some laying around. That Scherell oil somehow seems to work better on the woodgrain, than the rest. The┬áScherell oil comes in multiple colors, be sure not to use the “extra dark” but the “classic dark”.

The matt finish is gorgeous! And the smell, man… my man cave smelled great during those days. And you can still smell it when you grab the rifle. I love the smell of tung oil!
