Yea, I used to have a WWII garand that came with a beat up original birch stock. After stripping off the old finish, I steam ironed out the dents, mild sanding job, and refinished with brown shoe polish. After that, a coat of satin laquer and the stock looked just like new walnut!
Interesting I would have liked to seen it never heard of using shoe polish. Seen some pictures of nice tiger stripe birch Garand stocks on CMP forum.
I have also seen some pretty Mini 14 birch stocks & 10/22 birch stocks on Ruger forum.
