    I didn't even know there was a Boyds dealer in Australia, fantastic! Thanks. A new store to paw through. :D

    Currently extending the LOP on mine now, not sure what to finish it with tho.

    Any recommendations? Want as little gloss as possible on the timber.

    The $100 limit is one imposed by US Federal authorities and nothing to do with Boyd's. There is a way around it, but it would involve a large expenditure by Boyds which they certainly cannot justify. They could stop doing individual exports entirely, and not miss them financially.

    I got an inlet thumbhole laminate stock for my 77/22 back when they were $99 :)

    Really should finish that one day....

    You'd have to check the latest regs but there never used to be any restrictions on wooden rifle stocks (no B709 needed) when I worked there up to a few years ago. Plastic / metal ones with adjustments can be a whole other story...

    Tru oil is usually the recommendation.

    And you can make a commodore a 10 second car. Some people do it, but at the end of the day, everyone wonders why they went through all that effort when there's much better/easier ways :confused:

    Ah yep think I know the guy you would have been dealing with and yeah he's good like that, shooters here will go out of town if they don't compete. Didn't actually know they stocked Boyd's stocks.

    I thought you needed to finish timber in an oil to bring up the grain, (boiled linseed or similar) than apply a wax to seal it. I am in no way a wood worker though.

    edit: woops should have clicked your link, I've used watco danish oil, available from masters, on a shotgun stock years ago.

    I've got gilly stephensons old fashioned floor polish as I was able to pick it up locally at masters a few years back. I use it over all my wood rifles, just slap it on top of the original finish.

    They do a gun wax, which I haven't tried, Australian made product to boot.

    the shotty I did, stain, watco danish oil and the gillys polish

    I've got heaps of linseed oil and I have a good beeswax that I use on my boots that might go alright.

    Just spoke to dad. Reckons Tru oil and then take the gloss back with some steel wool, or just a good coat of wax to deepen the colour and seal it.

    Make sure it's boiled linseed not raw.

    Yeah have plenty but probably not gonna use it. Worried the colouring w ok NT complement the pepper too well.

    I've got good wax tho so we'll use that.

    Just wondering if anyone has land or knows someone with land around the newcastle, nsw area that would let myself and a friend both shoot on?

    We are both fully licensed. Send me a pm if you don't want to discuss publicly.

    Cheers,

    Some one really needs to set up a site were people can view local property's that then can shoot on, if targets/animals and if owner wants a fee ect or other conditions such as must be Ssaa member (for insurance ect)

    While this sounds like a great idea for the utopia in your head. The real world says this will end badly.
