    I recently bought a Remington 3200 Special Trap on Gunbrokers.com and when I received the gun I found that the seller had somehow forgoten to include pictures of the stock where the finish was lifting. I tend to be from the old school that liked a good oil finish.

    My question is what is the pros and cons of a good oil finish similar to Tru-oil versus the glossy finish that is achieved by using automotive clear coat.

    The more coats of oil you put on, the better it gets. It is also easy to repair any blems. HMB

    Pro: easy to repair blems.

    Con: Can take a long time to finish to desired luster.
