Waterlox...

John in NM
Mostly I use Waterlox because I am used to it. I've never found that the type of finish matters much if it gives you the results you're looking for, and usually there is more than one way to get those results. Any finish has strengths and weaknesses, the one you use a lot is usually the one you'll get the most out of.

I did a finish once rubbing out with pumice and rottenstone. The results were like a smooth lacquer finish without the plastic look. I may do that again as I have a Winchester 1894 that needs a stock and that would be a good one for the effort of rubbing out a finish.
