Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Vasteras rear sight moving during firing

The tiny center screw is used to zero the sight. Many won't budge due to rust, crud whatever. It can be pretty fragile so careful but make sure it's working properly and tightened. If your unable to turn it either way it's time to get the penetrating oil out. I understand that the tiny center screw...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

I like to ask a lot of questions. Did it while in college. Still do it to this day. That's how I learn what I Knever Knew. :)

Learning something new every day. Thanks guys.

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

Since my normal method, which generally turns out very nice, is to apply the minwax stain in several coats first, to get desired color, and then hand rub on the BLO (or RLO or Tung) then the idea of using the "tinted top oils" from the stains intrigues me. I might try applying just those tinted oils...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

I wonder why the Swiss used raw linseed over the boiled? I know the US used boiled linseed as well as Tung oil.

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

I've read that about other stains being better than minwax. I guess I just use what is available locally. Maybe some of the hobby stores might have those others. Please share some name brands I can look for. Thanks. If you want to "roll your own" then Grumbacher's Oil Colors ground in linseed oil c...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

On another note, but slightly related, is there a source for an unmolested Ljungman stock and handguard to buy? I wouldn't mind getting my rifle back into a correct military surplus stock. I hate to admit it but I did sand all the nice sharp edges off of mine 25 years ago when I first got it....and ...

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

Very nice rifle and stock. Yes, I've seen that color on the Swede's stocks. Do you think these stocks, which are beech wood, have been simply dipped in Linseed Oil with no other stain coloration, just the natural beech wood color and oil?

Re: Original stock wood color for the Swedes (bolt actions and semi's)

Can someone give me an idea what color you think my stock is stained? I'm pretty sure its beech wood, and I THINK the stain may be Golden Oak, or similar. What say you? Is this particular color completely wrong for Ljungmans? I kinda like it and almost wouldn't mind keeping the color, but hand rubbi...
