    Refinishing Iraqi Fixed Stock

    Has anybody here refinished an Iraqi buttstock? I'm wondering what kind of oil gives it that distinctive color.

    Thanks,
    Trog

    It was covered in some sticky gunk I had to remove.

    Because it’s an oil finish, it went immediately to bare wood.

    I just want to know what sort of oil to put on it to protect it and restore its original appearance.

    BLO and unwashed ass.
    Want to buy:
    1966 East German AKM kit
    TYPE 1 kit
    North Korean kit
    Serbian M76 sniper vest (M-99 A3)


    If I was not on some government watch list, I'd be insulted.

    Yes., BLO will work.
    A few coats with drying time in between.
    If you want a bit more finish and harder finish you can use TruOil.
    It has BLO and more hardeners.
    Prety much the same Amber color as BLO.

    Any opinions on RLO? Roughly the same color, or will I lose something with that?

    Raw is probably better. I think I read that's what was used on Yugo stocks.

    Raw and boiled Linseed Oil are the same basic product.
    The boiled has some hardening agent added.
    The raw can take up to a week to harden.
    Either will work.
    For small projects with multiple coats., I find BLO to be easier or the TruOil.
