Trade secret rapid oil was recommended to me by PAPA on here and I'm very pleased with the results, check out the results I had here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1322&start=10

cant make my mind up on this one maybe i wont go with the tru oil .. have had another look on the net and tru oil seems to leave a very varnished glossy like finish .. so maybe i will take a chance on the trade secret oil as its a more satin finish ........... has anyone on here used the tru oil on there walnut stocks i would be very grateful for any more info or pics etc

I missed your post buddy....

I did as PAPA advised viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1322&start=10 (with pics), cleaned with a slightly damp cloth first and let it dry overnight. Then I applied a small amount of the oil by hand by tipping the bottle and getting some on the end of a finger, lightly spread it on the wood and then tok the palm of my hand and rubbed it. Add oil as needed but you won't need a lot to cover the whole stock - everyone recommends avoiding the chequering as much as possible. I left mine standing on the butt end and left it for an hour then went back and checked for any oil on the surface and rubbed that in again. Let it dry completely before applying more oil, keep going until you get the finish you want. If you want a glossy coat keep applying the oil as above. I put 4 coats on in total over 2 days. If you prefer the satin look, get some 0000 grade wire wool from Ebay and VERY gently / lightly go over the stock with it again avoiding the chequering, this will leave a nice satin smooth finish that is well protected.
