    Does anyone know what type of finish Caesar Guerini uses on their shotguns? My check piece side is getting kind of thin looking & I was wanting to refinish it or retreat the finish. thanks

    Oil finish, Linseed oil will do the trick. (boiled)

    I am fairly certain that is what they use anyway.

    Guerini offers a kit for the wood finish.

    I asked this question to the Guerini rep while at the Ohio State Shoot. He recommended using steel wool #0000 and a product from Birchwood Casey.

    Jim, the Guerini rep who lives in Michigan, also told me that you can send it into their facility here in the states and they will refinish it for you should you want to go that route.

    The finish on my CG stock and forearm became discolored and dull from sweat and sunscreen. I had all the wood totally refinished in a clear hardcoat that now requires no maintenance and looks great. Repairing the oil finish will only soon repeat the problem.

    Ned,
    Who did yours and how much did it cost. Can you post some pictures of it? I was thinking of having my done too.

    After about how many rounds does the finish on the Whodini start to look not so happy?

    Maybe they spent some of the wood finishing budget on advertising.

    I have a CG Maxum Combo that is going on three years old.
    Knowing it's an oil finish, here's what I do.
    First a couple of times a year I'll take Murphy's Wood Soap
    and wipe the stock down. Also during the hotter months when
    cleaning the gun itself, I take an old cotton sock and wipe it down
    with boiled linseed oil. Then after about 10 to 20 minutes I'll
    take a clean cotton sock and wipe the oil off.
    Because I use the gun as it was meant to be used I've scratched
    it on numerous occasions. But if you looked at the stock you can't see
    scratch one because of the oil wipe.
    Mine looks almost as good as new.

    Mine is actually fine, I just prefer the higher gloss look than the oil finish. However it shoots so good I really can't be bothered right now. I also shoot mine rain or shine.

    I had mine done @ J.S. Air Cushion in Azusa, Ca. [Info@JSAirCushion.com] for $300. I live in L.A. so it was very convenient. The high gloss finish with a hardener in it, looks like the wood on the new Blausers,Kolars and Kreighoffs that I've seen.

    There is really nothing to maintain except occasionally wiping it off with a soft rag.It hasn't stained or discolored during the past two years.Surface scratches come right out with Simonize fine scratch remover which is a white creme.Works equally well on plastic as on the barrel and rib.

    I would post pics but I'm 3500 miles from my gun right now.
