I have some bare walnut grips needing a good finish. They look great bare, but I wish to protect them from grime and dings.

I have some stock oil (tung/linseed type), but am wondering what else knowledgable people suggest. The stocks are tightly fitted with both smooth and stippled sections.

Sounds like the tung/linseed oil you have might work great. I use Birchwood Casey Tru Oil gunstock finish almost exclusively. It's available at Walmart, dries fast, looks great, and doesn't cost a ton.

I have had very good success with the Birchwood product mixed 2/3 oil to 1/3 lacquer thinner. Use thin coats applied with a balled up cleaning patch and burnish with very fine steel wool between coats. Be patient and build up the surface to fill in pores.
