    what would you use to refinish a stock (sanded bare) to get a shinney/high gloss finish. To many products to choose from
    Thanks Lee

    Birchwood Caseys Tru Oil at least 20 coats,0000 steal wool in between each coat
    lots of work but worth it. You may have to mud it in to fill the pours the
    first few coats.

    Ditto on the Tru-Oil. Did my Beretta 682 myself. Went from the matte oil finish look to the high gloss. Lots of elbow grease.



    Not a very good picture but the Tru-Oil really brought out the figure in the wood.

    Here is vote #4 for Tru Oil. Put a drop on, spread it with your finger, repeat until covered. Let dry (4-8hours). Lightly rub with 0000 steel wool until you can't feel any roughness with your finger. Repeat above steps until it is a glossy as you want.
