Looking good Frank,
Orest doesn't "foresee" any more after '09, so now may truly be the Good 'ol Days. Wish I lived as close as you. Would buy more with mis-matched but very nice usgi stocks. Can always match em up later. Seemed to be a lot of U code NPM's on the 15th. If NPM is what you're after, might as well get one of those. Thanks for your help when we were down there.

You got the finest winchester stock in the place and a type 2 band.
Last week wasn't that good, only 7 NPM and about 7 Quality all potbelly and MW close to 3. Might do better ordering in mail. You got a good collection also, ever take a group photo?

I really, really, have to start posting photos of some of my carbines. Very much appreciate the photo's posted here by others. I learn a great deal from them, and feel a little guilty for not yet reciprocating.
One example; Always wondered about an I cut stock I got on an Inland carbine. Seemed to have an extra large Inland cartouch close to the cut out. Found out here it was an early Quality Hardware manufactured by Rockola. Kind of unique in that the crossed cannons was stamped upside down. Busy day at the factory!

WOW those stocks came out real nice! I have also been visiting the CMP on a regular basis the last month or two, but only left with alot of ammo, 2 carbines, an M1, a 1903a3, and a Mossberg .22.
When I went in on Wednesday George made the comment that this must be getting addictive! LOL
Anyhow, I love the way you stocks came out! Care to share what you did?

Each stock was different, Some of them were fuzzy and stunk real bad,
Gojo and steel-wool got them to smell better.
then I progressively used steel wool coarse to fine. Finish with Formby's
and knock the gloss off with each coat. Formby's is a varnish oil, so it will
fill pores on porous grain real good. It really shows deep grain on walnut.
It also seems to protect against small dings and such better than just BLO.
It really binds the fibers together to protect wood. And if someone don't
like it, it can easily be removed in the future. To give it that low gloss look
I use a Majik Sponge or magic eraser, those things are great.
Some were sanded with a grinder at the arsenal, so just knocked down the
roughed spots. If I had to stain the stocks, I would use alcohol based stain,
I would stain the stock wet and use full strength, this prevented blotching.
I have got a few that just have BLO, it maybe the right way, but it don't
bring out the grain of the walnut.
