This is a somewhat old post and threads, but perhaps it will be helpful for those forum members who have not finished their M1A stocks. The wood stock that ships with the M1A is a beautiful, richly grained wood that should not be left unfinished. Other forum members have posted their finishing techniques. Some are very labor-intensive. While we (recruits) did use the "raw linseed oil method" at Parris Island, it was very labor-intensive and time-consuming.

For my M1A I decided to use Formby's Tung Oil Wipe On Poly and then Min Wax Wipe On Polyurethane. As recommended by Formby's technical support/customer service I used 0000 steel wool. The methodology that I used is described in detail in the attached file.
