    I think they are two part acrylic automotive finishes. They are expensive. I think around $300 a gallon. You only mix what you are going to use.

    I have seen some real nice jobs where they used an automotive clear coat, but would it matter which finish you used as to the results you wanted?

    Like a shiny finished compared to a satin finish??

    MD,

    That's Tru! LOL. Plus it is easier to apply, fix any problems, and you can repair the scrathces, and nicks. Jon

    Don't know "what material the professional stock makers use". Whatever the gun manufacturer's use is not easy to repair. Two-part high build wood finishes exist that are used by industry. I tried to get one made by ICA but could not find a source. Two part automotive clear coat is a high build finish but it will not be easy to repair dings. You will need spray equipment. Tru-oil is not a high build finish and takes many coats, but is easy to repair and apply. Better stick with Tru-oil.

    Bvr Tail , You should be able to dull the shine on any of the finishes, certainly can with Tru-oil.
