Here's another Calgunner who refinished his rifle; he was more aggressive with sanding than I was and used rit dye followed by polyurethane. I think his stock dye came out better than mine - more even and it seems to have penetrated the wood better, so I might suggest the rit dye method to those thinking of staining. I wouldn't recommend using poly, though - I would still finish with an oil or oil finish, but that's subjective and depends how you want it to look.
