Default grip refinish

I picked ups a 686 no dash with cambat finger grooves this weekend. Gun is excellent but the finish is peeling on the grips.
No dings or chips, but I want to strip and refinish. What do you suggest to achieve the original factory finish.

I've used Tru-oil and Tung oil on stocks before, but I want these to be factory fresh.

I'm going to put standard magnas on the gun and put the finger grooved combats away.
