Default Rifle stock refinish

I had an old Remington 788 laying around that Iíve been planning to refinish the stock on. It had its fair share of dents and dings all over and I finally started. I forgot to take a before picture, unfortunately.

Iíve never done this but thought that it couldnít be that hard to do. The first step was putting some citristrip on the stock to remove the old finish. I had to do two coats and Iím not sure I quite used it right. It seemed harder to remove than I expected. I used a flathead screwdriver and sandpaper to remove.

Iíve applied two coats of stain but think I want it a tad darker. Then I will be applying the tru oil and finish everything up. Maybe Iíll have time to finish it this weekend and can post up more pics.

This is after the first coat and then after stain. I ordered the Birchwood Casey try oil stock refinishing kit.
