Thank you for the kind words. That is indeed my dilemma. The three of them are always next to each other and it's very difficult to decide which one, if any, should go down the road for something else. The Deluxe will keep evolving with more polishing and rubbing oil until it develops the same sheen that the Merkel has. The Deluxe really has dark wood with deep, intricate grain patterns.

Just amazing. The transformation on the DeLuxe is astounding. I know we have discussed some sell off's but I believe with the 3 together it would be very tough to break them up.

My Three Oiled Beauties

Post by JB on Sat Aug 16, 2008 11:56 am

The rifle on the left is my recently completed Mark V Deluxe project which involved stripping off the polyurethane coating, re-checkering the stock, and applying many layers of oil finish. The center rifle is my refinished Euromark that I acquired from BighornWby. The one on the right is my refinished Classicmark II that I bought from KingCobraTx.

The girls are all chambered in the .300 Weatherby.
