I have been looking through the archives for suggestions as to how to get the red color that some of the old Mausers have in the stocks. Especially the
Turkish Mausers. I am working on the stock on a short Turk, and it was really red when I stripped it.
I saw some of the postings, but I am interested in something to mix with the BLO itself rather than staining the wood before finishing. I believe dirtyjim posted something about a powder he mixes with his finishes, but I can't find it now.
