Dean, I like the Watco marine. My neighbor used it on furniture that he made and I started to refinish rifles with it, to well I guess because there seem to be a steady stream of guns friends want refinished.

Nice job on that oil finish. Nothing improves a Repro or a Browning Superposed more than doing exactly what you did...

Dean, the upper photo was taken by Westley Richards in Montana where I bought the gun used. It had a typical Parker Repro. very shiny, thick urethane finish, and the figure in the wood was not nearly as easy to see as in the lower pic of the oil refinished stock. I could have stained it to make it darker, but I really liked the result as is.
Pat, I was hoping you were comparing my gun's finish to the Purdey and not Daves ! Seriously, thanks for the compliment. The oil I used is an old family secret that I've used to refinish, or just improve the finish, on at least a dozen guns. Drum roll...Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil ! I really like the stuff.
