In Paris I found Clarified Linseed oil in an Art shop.
I used that on one of my No8 rifles. The clarified oil is slightly lighter colour than the standard pressed linseed oil; so handy if you have a beech stock that wants to stay blonde.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Stand oil is the original heat treated linseed oil.
The stuff sold in the U.S. (mainly at home improvement stores & so on) is a blends linseed that may, or may not be boiled, but it does have other things & chemical dryers added.
You may also find it sold as PURE linseed oil.
