Any advice out there on refinishing a wooden stock. I have bought a rifle with a GIMB stock and the finish is well....less than perfect. I am torn between stripping the existing stuff off or just rubbing it down and applying a new finish over the flattened surface. I have finished a stock with Danish Oil before, but this time I would prefer to have the high gloss finish as I seem to see on most stocks. This finish looks like thick clear lacquer. I wonder is there anything anyone can recommend, which can be applied by spray can. I'm thinking clear cellulose lacquer as in a car spray can, but I'm not sure how durable this would be. I think there is a also a lacquer that can be applied to wood via cotton wool pads and lots of rubbing.
