If it’s the high gloss Browning finish, I’ve gotten very good results with super glue. You can google the repair method.

If they are not real deep, you may be able to sand with very fine grit wet sand paper, then buff out. I am talking down to 3000 grit before polishing. Make sure you do not sand through the finish. You may be able to fill it first with super glue, which I have never tried.

Just remember sometimes "The road to hell is paved with good intentions ".

I have had some luck on browning finishes using a heat gun . i have had some scratches that I thought would require a refinish almost disappear . I believe the coating softens and fills in the scratch . Just do a little at a time. Don’t get tempted for perfection and only apply heat for small periods of time .
On my Browning SA22, I had some bad finish damage . I was able to get it to disappear completely . I’m not as brave on my 725 .

After the heat treatment , let it cool overnight and if it’s not to your liking , buff with very fine compound , then apply paste wax .

Someone else had the same thing recently posted told to get an automotive clear coat touch up pen basically a type of super glue but ultra clear they have both a pen type tip for fine scratches and a small brush for bigger ones. Let it harden for an hour or so and then level the finish with super fine sand paper 2500 or finer and finish with automotive clear coat buffing compound works great on those shiney finished
