    I have a new SO 5 Sporter and it has a matte finish.

    Does anyone know someone that is capable of make the stock have a higher gloss finish?

    Thanks

    Thanks for that info Ken. I did not know she does that sort of work. She is short driving distance(one town over) from me. I'm sure being a daughter-n-law to Stu, she does top notch work. I may have to give them a shout on one of my next projects.

    Matt: Molly refinished the stock/forearm on my Beretta 682 several years ago. She did a very good job. Ed

    Depending on the type of finish on your gun,you may be able to achieve the desired results without a complete refinish. My 687EELL was a matt finish. After polishing with Meguiar's final glaze it is as shiny as my K-80. If your SO-5 is oil finish you may be able to add an additional oil finish and buff to a higher sheen. I've done that we some Cole Custom wood on my 391 that was an oil finish. It turned out very nice.

    Beretta seems that there "oil" finish in not real durable. I would give it a good wipe down with mineral spirits and coat it with Tru-Oil. Then polish it to a shine. The process is a little more detailed, of course. Jon

    Jon,

    Yep, the process is just a little more involved. Actually, i'm learning alot and having fun doing my Beretta stock myself. It is really looking good and i'm starting to get that feeling of satisfaction of doing a project yourself. No greater feeling than doing a project from start to finish and then being able to use your work for a sport you love.

    Looks good Matt. It really shows the grain of the wood when the high luster finish is applied. It adds depth to the wood. Jon

    The difference really shows there. It is almost a 3-D effect. Jon

    The best thing about that finish is that scratches can easily be fixed. If they are light you can buff them out. If they are deeper just add Tru-Oil to the scratch, and build it up past the surface, wet-sand it level, polish and wax. You will never know it was there. That is why it is important to make sure you have enough finish on the stock. Jon
