Well, my project is completed. Boiled Linseed Oil - many hand-rubbed coats over several weeks followed by two coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly. This wood is absolutely gorgeous in person. I love this retro look ! :cool:

Very nice placement of the leaves to give it a natural and native look much like a seagull walking on the beach while the porn stars are going at it in the next scene.

Thanks guys. The wood has an almost "wet" look to it now. I don't want it too glossey. The pics don't do it justice. Right now it's just a grade highter than "satin sheen". I think I'm done with this beauty. Now to put a few duty "character marks" on her for individuality. ;)

I have a Gunbroker auction gun arriving at my FFL today and the only thing I want to do right away is add the mag extension,is the one on your firearm the stock Remington one?

Yessir. It's the factory Remington that came on the gun. If you don't want the front barrel clamp I recommend shopping for another because this one has a groove pressed around it for the clamp bolt to ride in. I prefer the clamp so the tube don't unthread on me so that's a non-issue to me.

check out wilson combat, they have +1 and +2 extensions for about $45 shipped. They are rock solid and don't require a clamp.

Great job! Looks really, really nice.

Great to see people using elbow grease instead of just swapping for new parts.
