    just bought a caesar guerini summit 32 o/u. bought it from a gunbroker in georgia and had it shipped to a dealer near me in philly. great wood. shot it a couple of times and now I notice a scratch about 3 inches in length that I assume I did. any suggestions regarding repair. yes its just a gun, but you like it to look good!

    look in phone book under funiture restoration/repair,they have the ability to fill in scratches with colored wax sticks and can probably match it where you will not notice it.

    Try a light coating of linseed oil and rub into wood until you feel the heat from friction of your hand or fingers against the wood.
    If you don't get the friction you have applied too much. Wipe off the excess and keep rubbing.

    The first time I had my Summit out of the case, a fellow trap shooter wanted to look at my new gun and scratched it on his jacket zipper.

    Rubbed the scratch with Linseed oil and you can't even notice it now. It is still there, it just does not stick out.

    No wax sticks. Rub the oil. Todd

    Todd's right no wax you want a furniture oil or a urethane modified oil. I finish a lot of Guerini's several each month. Most of them are a urethane/oil satin finish; if it's on the surface and has not broken the surface of the wood leave it. If it's gone through the surface use oil and 600 grit at the same time. As a quick fix old English scratch remover works some times.
