1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Previously only had beech stocks so thought id try an oil out on the stock, read a few saying try this and that and ended up buying parker hale walnut oil of the bay for a fiver, 2 screws of and stocks in my hand, i then thought just how dry and dull the stock looked, didnt look as bad when in one piece, so put a small drop of oil in my hand and started rubbing, 30 mins later sat back and thought wow what a difference, left over night and did daily for a few days, my brother who also has a hw100 popped round and instantly noticed the difference compared to his... its really bought the grain out, still going to do a few more days then ease of and do weekly, i have tried taking pics and even then it doesnt do the stock justice... for a fiver and a few hours rubbing i must say im impressed, im sure theres better and worse stock oils out there but as ive only ever tried one i thought id post anyways, only downside is.... you only need a little on your hands and some swift rubbing so it goes along way untill you hmmm spill half the bottle on the new carpet which impressed my missus loads :eek:

    Lovely stock you have there. The oil has brought the grain out a treat. Nice work.

    The stock has a tiger effect in the grain, looks top notch :up:

    The 2nd two pics look better, the flash makes it look a weird colour :)

    Although the stripes look more defined on the flash pics

    I've recently done this to my Raider 10XS stock and it's done a really good job too! Although I paid about £1.50 for some walnut oil from asda, lol. Make sure you warm the stock slightly before you apply each coat, just allows the wood to suck up the oil a bit more :)

    Do you just rub it onto the existing stock or do you have to rub the stock over first with sandpaper?

    i left mine overnight on top of the wardrobe " stock only and action in locked cabinet " when heating kicked on in the evening after a few hours of heat rising i grabbed and rubbed away, only a drop in the palm of my hand, rubbing fast to warm oil up then gently massage into every crack n crevice, after 30-45 of massaging leave over night and give a gentle rub in the morning with a soft cloth , place back on wardrobe and repeat later in evening when kids in bed :) seemed to work well, where the action sits was dry as a bone so i let it soak in nicely and havnt even rubbed of, will keep soaking lightly till actions ready to go in

    Yeah that's it :).
    You can rub it down with some 800 grit to begin with just to smooth anything down. Depends what condition the stocks in to be honest.
