    Thanks. I had started blasting metal tonight, but the hose to my automatic drain on the compressor blew out, so finished emptying the tank on what I could and then did a little fitting of the upper hand guard and some sanding. Also treated some of the dark stains with some barkeepers friend, which seemed to help on some of them getting the black from the metal out.

    Today I got the stock sanded to 320. Considering where it started from, it looks pretty good, I wasn't going for perfect though.

    And decided that with the dark stains left they would blend in better with some stain, so went with Early American.

    I'll start rubbing in some BLO over the next week. My replacement hose should be here this week for the air compressor, so will hopefully finish up the metal cleaning this week. I have a little filing to do on some of the parts, but should be ready to blue by next weekend.

    Why BLO? Why not Birchwood-Casey Tru-Oil, or one of the other stock finishes? Watco 'Natural' also works well and gives a nice sheen. The don't need frequent reapplication like BLO does, either.

    I simply haven't used them before, though I think I do have a bottle of tru-oil on the shelf that came with a kit I bought a while back. Does is dry faster than BLO?

    Yes, it does, and it gives a nice sheen to the stock. Reasonably durable, too.
