Stock Finish

Posted by Jeff D on Thursday, 23 April 2015, at 10:27 a.m.

I have a Springfield M1888 that somebody did a poor job of trying to sand the rack numbers off the stock. They left the stock really rough with sand marks so I used some fine sand paper to remove the marks. My question is, what did Springfield use as a final finish on the stocks? I have checked the restoration section of this website and see how to clean the stock but did not see how to finish the stock. Thanks in advance.
