Nicely done.

Please confirm you used no stain to color the stock.

Yes walnut stain diluted down with alcohol. Each coat of linseed oil made the stock and forend richer coloured. They were put in the sun (hot and high UV's) and turned every hour.

I was taught......Hand rubbed Linseed oil....Once an hour for a day...once a day for a week....once a week for a month.....once a month for a year.....Then as needed

Very nice.  A good butt wrap will help protect that shiny finish from LT, ULT, and restaging table debris.  But with linseed oil, repair is also pretty easy.   Nice job.

I have a really nice leather butt wrap, just want to wait another week or so before I put it back on.

Some judicious steaming can “heal” many of the dings on stock and fore end finished with good oil!

I've done 30 or 40 stocks with linseed oil. I like to dilute the first few coats with thinner so it penetrates easier. I also like a satin finish instead of the "shine". I use powdered pumice and light mineral oil rubbed to give the stock a satin, less glossy finish.

Put the leather butt cover on.

Please excuse the dust on the old Cutler roll top desk (Buffalo NY) that showed up in the pics :(  my grandfather, he bought this desk in 1899, been in the family for 122 years I still have the old receipt buried away somewhere.
