    I have a Remington 11-87 special purpose that has some surface scratches on the stock. It has that dull finished wood. Can I get some of them off there?

    Maybe, but if you buff through the finish , you will regret messing with it.

    You can sand them out, but if you buff the finish it will become glossy and not match the rest of the stock. Every once in a while 0000 steel wool will work, but you will be able to tell where the damage was. Larry

    Go to your Auto Parts store which handles top quality paint finish products and look at some of the new scratch and Clear coat scratch removers and these will work very well. Some are a two step process and some are just a one step. Good luck.

    kitchen wax and 0000 steel wool. it will take the shiny finish off, along with light scratches. On many guns this finish looks very nice.
