    Default Silver Pigeon I Stock Finish Improvement Suggestions

    I'd like to improve the luster and bring out more of the wood grain on my Silver Pigeon I. Anyone here actually do it successfully?

    I be real careful, anything other then stock finishes can really hurt the value. Too Shinny or dull and people really hone in on that.

    Check out shotgun world. There are 432819056 different products and methods over there to bring out luster in oil finished stocks. YMMV, though...

    Took it to a Master Stock Maker and asked his opinion. He handed me a bottle of Ox Yoke All Natural Gun Oil. He went down the list of Boiled Linseed, Tung, Tru oils etc and said why they each won't work over top of the original finish. He told me to rub in 2-3 coats and that it would dry beteen each coat with no oily reside. I was skeptical at first but he was right on the money. It brought out the grain without looking overly shiny.

    Have before and after pics? I'd love to see how it looks. Thinking about trying it on a couple oil finished Winchester Rifles I have.

    Beretta uses some kind of satin finish on that gun that would really have to be professionaly stripped or whatever you try doing to it won't work. like someone else said, once you change it, you lost 500 in value because no one will want it. its a 2000 shotgun not a 300 shotgun where people don't care. if your keeping it forever then go to it, see how it comes out.
