Was there ever a time when marlin wood finish varied and was not so shiny?

The old Marlins, in the 30's and 40's, had an oil finish.

Bought an 1895 CB and CBA that were NOT shiny. Made 'em shiny.

The shine can be removed with steel wool, #0000.

Have both oil and shiny. Oil ones hunt in wet weather, shiny ones in nice weather or just shooting day with kids and grandkids they have to bring there own ammo. .22's and 30-30

I just refinished my 39A golden with Frombys tung oil. Lots of patience and 1500 grit made a beautiful job.

1500 grit? May as well use typing paper. 600 grit is about as fine as I use. After that it's steel #0000 wool. It works great for me but may not work for everyone.

Don't let that city-dweller with the "deer" after his name hear you doing that!

0000 works great! Restores shiny finishes to a rich lustre when followed with an old time paste wax, too. Clean surface before applying wax.

For a "flat" finish, 3M Ultra Fine "black" pads work well, also.

You are confusing the two common sandpaper grading systems. P1500 is only equal to the US standard 800 grit. Still mighty fine, but not nearly as fine as it seems.

Steel wool has no place in stock work, ever. That despite the fact it was used for a very, very long time.

Little does he know--- Been using steel wool on stocks for over half a century. Works great if you know how.

Please! Please! Do not believe me! Make a sample board and look at it under magnification and do another without the steel wool and you will stand a very good chance of seeing exactly why.

I did my first stock in '65. I used lots of steel wool until I found out why it is a bad idea. More to the point there are far better, easier ways to avoid the hazards produced by steel wool.

I have shown many how to test it and none believed in steel wool after.

You have no argument, whatsoever, so you want to change the conversation?

More to the point, steel wool has been known as a bad thing for decades and you have not heard about it until now? Or did you ignore the advice without even bothering to test it?

Please, spend a few moments and prove I am wrong.

Defend yourself all you want (on the internet)...you OBVIOUSLY don't know how to USE materials let alone what some of them are (abrasive pads) OR how to clean your project to complete it.
