    They weren't varnished or finished in boiled linseed oilicon which has chemicals in it to make it dry quicker. Like most military rifles of that vintage, the wood was treated with raw linseed oil. There was a dye powder that was mixed in the warmed tanks too although the AG42's I've had didn't appear to be stained at all. The wood was probably just dipped in a warmed tank of RLO and hung up to drip dry. Strip the varnish with the correct chemical stripper and then you can stain it to taste using alcohol based stain if you like. Then apply RLO and it will look perfect. RLO, not BLOicon will also take on a darker reddish tint with age.

    I have allowed the wet application to stand for considerable time on my various attempts.

    I have not tried to wrap it in cellophane (to keep it wet) for an extended time. I may give that a try, depending on how the 1850 performs.

    Thanks for all the commentary. I will upload a new picture to show the area I've been working on. After my first failure with the 'citrus' stripper, I quit applying the stripper to the entire stock. Instead, I have been applying each new attempt to a small area.

    (I'm pretty tied up today, so I may not get a picture uploaded until tomorrow...)

    Cheers,

    No need, next step is burning it off with a heat gun.

    1850 will dry if you do that, use steel wool and keep gooping it on and working it. Don't try to save the product.
