I'm leaning toward brown.

The description says it is beech, not maple, but I think the chemical will work the same.

It would. You won't get the lines that you would with the figured maple, but you would still get the color change in the light flecks of the beech where the grain varies in density. It gives the stock a unique "chatoyance" that is tough to achieve with stain. Either way, nice gift and it looks like a fun project. Enjoy.

Brown would look best to me.  That will be cool when you finish it.

 

My last gun stuff purchases were an AR upper for a gift, and primers for me.

 

I keep giving away my ammo, so I need pistol ammo.

It gives the stock a unique "chatoyance" that is tough to achieve with stain. Either way, nice gift and it looks like a fun project. Enjoy.

 

I went ahead and ordered the aquafortis. I thought this would be a perfect project to learn a new process with. There is a color difference between the two pieces of the stock. I hope this will disappear with the chemical aging. I'm also waiting on a thicker piece of brass plate to machine a new piece where the two halves of the stock join. I wasn't at all happy with the stamped plate that came with the kit. I need to do that before I do any more sanding and finishing.

 

The project is coming along slowly, but nicely.

Can't wait to see it. In matching up wood tones, you should be able to do and extra coat and heat application to the lighter to match up if needed. Just remember that the color continues to darken with age, (redder and browner) and take that into consideration up front when deciding how many coats. Your work is always nice, I am sure this will be no exception.
