    I made my pistol grip out of poplar and the grain matches pretty good . Stained it mahogany/and oak stain mix and it matches my handguards & butt stock. Also matches wood on the underfolder

    If I'm going to the effort I would like to us the same or very similar wood.
    Only thing I can think of is possible cracked or very poor fixed stock
    coming back to cfs.I wonder if there is enough meat in the fixed stock for 1
    or two pg's.I bought underfolders so no way to check.
    Any feedback is helpful.

    Here's the handguards from an M90 I used to own. When I bought the rifle it was covered in cosmo from 10 years previous. I used the above method and acheived this result.

    Hey Teadie intrested in your metod-About how much simple green and how long do you simmer it for?

    After reading what the wood worker said through that link I have decided to use only heat, and the (real) tung or linseed oils. I want my wood to last that extra 100 years. Wood workers should know whats up with wood. Thanks to the wood worker for explaining that stuff for us.

    I think I'm just going to heat out the excess cosmo and keep it as is. It's amazing how much oozes out with a blow dryer.
