    I have a rifle stocked with a beautiful piece of raw American walnut I do not want to stain it, so what can I use to seal it? Thanks for your answer Hank45

    Lefty O is right in his suggestions but there are also some very good stock finishes put out by brownell's that are of the eurothane varity that are quicker and easier to work with and do just as good as the slow rub on finishes.

    Sealed and many coats of Truoil gives a deep look and brings out any figure beautifully. The rubbing gives it the hardness and durability needed on a hunting rifle.
