    I have a brand new gun that has an oil finish. Need some recommendations on to who could make it a high gloss finish.
    Thanks in advance.

    High gloss finishes show rack attacks a whole lot better than oil finishes. Were it mine I would leave it oiled. My Ultra XT High Gloss was in the rack 15 minutes and got a big whack in it. It took a whole month for that 1/2 inch scratch to fade into the insignificance it actually is.

    TruOil works great if you take your time with it.

    Click on the link above and don't look back. Larry does one of the finest refinishing jobs I have had the pleasure of seeing. He has done a couple for me that were way over and above expectations. Great guy, great job, and reasonably priced. A "no brainer" here, for sure.... Just my experience.... Dan Thome (Trap2)
