    Nope... just put the second coat of tru oil on it this morning, which I like but it's way too glossy. I'll have to cut it with steel wool or something to get the final matt finish I'm looking for.

    Anyway, she's off to the smith tomorrow to get chopped to 16.5". :D

    What about the rifle, was the stock black when you got it? Is it stained or coated with something?
