Picked up this walnut stock from a neighbor who did a tactical upgrade on his 10/22. I gave him $50 which he readily accepted.

Thanks all!
ZommyGun, it's always a crap shoot off ebay or other pic related sources. Artifically? Yeah, I brought in a Bengal T to do piece work!
Actually there are tip and tricks to picking a winner. I've tried to hone these skills as well as the refinishing techniques.
For whatever it's worth I have several SE Overtons which I've acquired from various sources. I'm working on one now. I may offer it here if there's interest.
I totally enjoy the find, the reparation and the finish process. It's a very enjoyable & rewarding experience.

Here's a before and after of one from a while ago. So abused it was CPS bait!



Here's the forend of the orig tiger stripe stock pic.

All these have multiple applications of a "proprietary blend" I developed through trial and error.

I found a new one for $118 plus $15 shipping. Is that a good deal?

EL Pistoffo,
It's a blend of a few things. I was going for a knocked down gloss which is slightly more semi than gloss. I use a series of grit polishes once the finish is cured, to achieve what's in my head.

RiverRat,
Retirement's ALL it was cracked up to be. Time to enjoy refinishing, shooting, reloading, photography, grandkids and an occasional dip in the pool! Not to forget the wife of 40+
Life's been good to the Rugaman

May you all get there ...in time of course!

If you want walnut make sure to verify that it is in fact REAL walnut and not the generic "walnut" which is birch in most cases and maple in less.
If under the buttplate, it's lighter (white) wood it's birch. Birch is worth considerably less than walnut. Though some list their stocks on ebay as "walnut" and they may believe walnut they are in many cases birch.
Just a heads up!
Thanks for that post. Good info.

Looks like its time for me to find a beater and give it a try. These are GORGEOUS. I couldnt do it to the stock on my 10/22 as its 20 years old and pretty much flawless. But a beater one off aslist I could screw up and not feel too terrible.

For other members reading this thread: Ask here to other members

if they have stocks they want to trade or sell. I just traded six stocks

(4 wood & 2 polymer ) for other parts.

ALSO we can trade barrels etc. I have many extra barrels now. I like to

use, Boyds' SS Evolution® Replacement Gunstocks.

I encourage you to give it a go! "Beater real walnuts" are out there but obviously not as plentiful as generic (birch).
The carbine OEM are generally two types: Real "black walnut" by SE Overton, the WWII stock maker who was contracted by Bill R. for the first few years 1964-1970ish on the 10/22. The next issue was done in house by Ruger and some of these guys are outstanding wood grain. Birch became the easier cheaper way to go by the early 80's.
The Sporter is a fancier stock almost always walnut unless it's the "Walmart Special of the early 2000's which some sell as Ruger walnut sporters but ARE NOT.
Look for something without stress fractures and other labor intensive blems.
Many old walnuts appear to have a yellow cast as a result of UV rays. This isn't a problem and shouldn't be a deal breaker.
My advice is to try a carbine first and avoid the checkering issues with the Sporter.

Now go get one!

Wonder if anything can be done with the old Birch stocks to make them look better?
