    Automotive polishing compound works great on removing
    light scratches . Don't use rubbing compound. It's to
    aggressive. Use a damp cloth wrapped around a flat
    eraser. Rub in one direction only.

    want to try something different???? i had some lite scraches on the top of my driver and i wanted to remove them....i know that you can get some dry rubbing compound on your rag which will leave scrathes....so i tried headlight polishing compound....it came out looking like new.....the compound is so fine that you will have to work at it....it's not quick...but it works....put just a little on your cloth...use a fine terry material...and keep rubbing EVEN after it has dried out on the rag...this dry material really polishes the best..give it a try...

    If you have very light scratches you can remove them, polish with toothpaste that contains whiteners. Automotive waxes that claim to bring back the shine will also contain polishing compound as well as wax.

    If the stock is "all skinned up" every 3 to 10 days why bother with it. The dent demons will just bugger it up again in 3 to 10 days. Eventually you will rub through the finish with polishing compound. Consider the scratches character marks and battle scars, show em with pride.

    Belt buckles, metal buttons, and metal rivets on levi's are bad about giving scratches. do all to keep gun awayfrom your body when it's not against your shoulder. lots of luck

    Try some 'FLITZ" polish. Available through Brownell's or Midway. Will put a mirror shine on finished wood and remove small scratches.

    Meguiars (the car polish people) make something named "ScratchX 2.0" that's intended to remove fine scratches and swirl marks in paint. It's great for polishing hard finishes on gun stocks. Most auto parts stores carry it: <center>
