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.
