    I examined a few new high grade Perazzi over at Griffin Howe,and was wondering what kind of finish they put on the wood?.It looked nothing more than sealer coats with no topcoat what so ever.

    You can get different finishes on Perazzi stocks. Just depends on what you like. I think the standard is a satin urethane finish. Lots of people polish it out to make it glossy. You can also get hand rubbed oil finish and a high gloss finish.

    I've refinished a bunch of them. Not sure what it is, but a rag soaked in lacquer will take it off. Krieghoff does a few like that too. Perazzi probably has the worst factory finishes of all. They don't spend much time trying to make them look good. Kolar is one of the best with wood and finish. Larry

    P gun wood has been fairly poor until recently. The factory finish does nothing to enchance the grain. I have seen marked improvement over the factory polymer finishes. When they would make a stock at The Grand, they would spray on a couple of coats in either gloss or matte. It was full of filler and hid any grain you might have.

    Dan's brother (Giacomo Sporting) does a nice high gloss finish on the wood, if you prefer to have a really nice finish instead of the muted factory finish.

    I like the way the Perazzi finish ages over time......but you're right in saying their finish doesn't help bring the grain definition out at all.
