cheers dave i may take you up on that offer , i have given the stock another coat today of linseed oil , letting it dry at the moment as it takes 24hrs . oh and iv'e done those bits you spotted under the adjustable cheek rest .

dave ... can wax like bri wax be put on the stock without having to take off the oil or would three or four coats of linseed oil weather proof it enough also do you think i should oil the inside of the stock . any tips on keeping my stock in good nick would be helpful . cheers lads
I'm suprised you're being so calm Nick! Like Dave says schlep loads of oil on it especially the inletting and adjustable bits until it won't take anymore in. I use Liberon black bison paste on all my stocks nothing else comes close to weather/hand sweat proofing wood work!
