    FOLKS ,

    I've got a few small,not deep , dings in a Browning Citori finish . Is there any good way to repair these small areas other than have the whole stock refinished . I assume it would be well over $ 300.00 to have it completely refinished , so I would like to know if it is workable to do small touchups yourself & how do you do it ? Brownings finish is pretty hard , I'm not sure how you would duplicate it .

    Thank you in advance for your time and help.

    There is nothing you can do that will make it look better. Leave it alone, after a while you won't even notice it. Anybody who tells you different is just blowin' smoke.

    The finish Browning uses will turn white where it's been damaged severely (broken). I've had success by removing the damaged finish with a scalpel and replacing it with crystal clear epoxy. Done properly and allowed to cure with the repair parallel with the floor, the repairs are a lot less obvious than the original damage. If the finish has been dented but not broken so that has not discolored, best to leave it alone.

    I've got both types of dings in my new XT. It is a sprayed on clear paint type finish. laquer, varnish, whatever. Touching it up will just make it worse.

    Just leave it alone. The only way to duplicate the factory finish is to send it back to the factory.$$$

    I do some stock refinishing and I can assure you that you might be able to duplicate it with enough "practice" but do you really want to practice on a $2000+ shotgun.

    Anytime you have checkering to contend with the difficulty level of redoing the finish goes up exponentially.

    All of this spells LOSER in capital letters. Leave it alone.

    Rub some Howard Feed and Wax on. HELPS!

    It's in Home Depot, Paint Dept. Good stuff.

    Won't help dents but really helps scratches.
