I have done a few. Be ready to pay cause I can understand why it's not cheap. Doing a wood stock is very labor intensive and time consuming. The last one I did took several weeks working on it a couple hours a day.

Go to Woodcraft or Rocklers and ask for referrals.

What kind of finish are you wanting and what type of gun(s)?

Unless it's a very high grade stock, you should be able to do it yourself no problem. Start with 120 grit and work your way up to were you want. On presentation grade stocks I'll take them to 2000 grit wetsanding each new application of oil I put in starting at 1000 grit. Or you can just sand to 2000 grit and apply a few coats of oil to your liking. I would highly recommend Star Brite Teak Oil. After your happy with how ever many coats of oil, put a coat of wax over it. Everyone has their own methods, but that's one I have found that I like. Good luck!

Agree with Reeder. There are plenty of 'how to' articles online and it's not very difficult. I refinished the stock on an old Model 12, choosing to use tongue oil, (lots of choices out there), and it came out great.

Depending on how particular you are on exactly what you want, get a "True-Oil" kit that has everything for DIY including very good instructions. I've seen some fantastic results with TrueOil.

FWIW
