First a caution. I have used the formula, but not for quite awhile, and then not very much. It came from an old friend of mine, who collected Winchesters, Maynards, and old damascus-barreled shotguns. The process worked wonders on those, but could well leave military stocks a bit too shiny for some tastes. You have to sense when to stop - or even to use the rottenstone at all.

I would think that Home Depot, or a good specialty paint store, would have both pumice and rottenstone. I do not know the chemical formula for either, but rottenstone is less abrasive than pumice, and is used to get a very shiny finish. They both used to come in small cardboard boxes, and a LIFETIME+ supply of either was only a dollar or two.
