Just picked up my first ever hunting rifle today - a new 2010 Marlin 336 in .35 Remy. It has a surprisingly nice walnut stock, even under that strange finish. Anybody have any good ideas about a refinish? Am I just asking for trouble? I looked at several older 336's and the condition of their wood was always questionable. Is that the reason for the new "bulletproof" finish? What's up?

I disliked the finish on mine too - it's almost blurry.

Congratulations on the 336 in a great cartridge.

I refinished my 1895 stock after it got a lot of use. I sanded it with a real fine grit and then used Tung oil. My dad refinished a lot of furniture and recommended it as being tough. The final finish was just right, no gloss and it sheds water real good. I used several coats of the oil and so far nothing has scratched thru.

Congrats on your 35 Rem, one of the best deer hunting calibers made even better with the new ammo by Hornady, Buy it, it's the only ammo you'll use.
