    I recently purchased an Akela.  Believe it has a walnut stock on it.  The finish is not all that impressive     I have a T200 that I finished in London Royal Oil    That turned out nice.  I don't want to sand the finish off of this and start off fresh.  I was wondering if by applying say another type of finish on this if it would spice it up a bit without hurting anything?  It;s not that bad, I'll just leave it alone before messing it up.  Any wood workers out there have any ideas, I'd appreciate it.    Thanks.       Hey,   if I get this pic stuff on here figured out I'll do a before and after    lol

    maybe just 5-10 wipe downs of linseed oil to harden and bring out some beauty

    I was thinking about that,  was gonna go out in the barn and try to find that London Oil      I didn't know if anyone had tried putting that over other stains or oils?   Probably just stick with the linseed        I've used it before       old stand by

    yeah it polymerizes so if you see or feel pores they should be filled by that. If it is Turkish they are more likely to have used a linseed anyway, unless Crosman is making the stocks with synthetic. Just make sure there is no run off or excess.
