    I managed to pick up 2 Falcon FN19 multi-shot in both .22 and .177. Both have never been shot and came in the original box. The actual stock was very nice however……..I’m left handed and so……I need a new stock. Thanks to Dirte’s post on his RAW, I wanted to make a Curly Maple stock. I have made stocks in Cherry, English Walnut, and Black Walnut and wanted to continue doing something different. Here is the process

    Very nice work on the stock!  I also really like the look of the original wood.  A sweet find with those Falcons.  I’ve always wanted one in .177cal.  … and you find one UNUSED???  Man I am JEALOUS!!!  :)

    I attempted to do Tru-oil but did not like how it was coming out and had to saaaaannnnd it off. I happened to be at my local wood/hobby shop and took their suggestion. Joe Wayne Rae may have had a better suggestion with his Antique Minwax technique but I went with what I could get due to time (also 1/2 off). It took about 10 coats which took 8-10 hrs to dry (in the desert). Quite happy with the results but took forever to get the shine I was after. Probably not going to be a hunting rifle, LOL!
    This is what I used

    Thanks for all the kind words. It is by no means a professional job; lots of flaws up close, but enjoyed the process.

    Thanks Matt and Hugo. The Curly Maple is very unique. It’s actually the outer sap wood. The core of the tree trunk is actually darker wood.

    Very nice! You do wonderful work. I have not been on the forum for some time. This was worth looking. I really like General finishes as well.
