My beloved Weatherby suffered a gun rack scrape and I need advice how to fix it. Is this a do-it-yourself touch-up or better left to a professional? I want to have minimal disturbance to the rest of the stock, just a touch up. Who or what to do?

Looks like more that surface blemishes to me. Based solely on the question asked, I suspect that new loader is not experienced with finishing stocks. I have tried spot repair the finish on a stock many times and all were unsuccessful. The color never seems to match and building up the finish to the same level of the original finish took me more time than refinishing the entire stock.

In my opinion new loader has two choices. 1. rub the damaged area with some form of finish paste, linseed oil or Old English polish and live with the damage. 2. Refinish the stock and forend wood.
