How Do I Redo The Stock Set On A Mgc Thompson?
Posted 23 September 2004 - 10:16 AM
The stock set stain doesn't all match....... The pistol grip is a different color stain the the rest of the stock set. How do I strip down the stocks an get them ready for restaining? I want to refinish in the reddish stain, (like the picture of the Thompson on this board), how do I do it and where do I get the stain that I guess is like original? What goes on the stocks after the stain?
I want to make this MGC Thompson look like an original 1921 Thompson for a nice wall hanger display and when board have fun shooting the blanks in it..
Appreciate the help guys. Also looking for a West Hurley Semi-Auto to buy from a private owner in Illinois. So if you have one let me know.

I'll echo the other gents' thanks for your service in Iraq. I stained my MGC wood to a nice red about 10 years ago, and it still looks nice; but I don't remember how I did it. Hey, that helps a lot, right? Do check the FAQ section on the board for staining info. Deerslayer, if you have time, maybe you can cut to the quick and help out our new member.
