I've been pondering how to attack this for a bit. Got a new Marlin 39A that had some of the checkering on the forearm and stock chewed up from the factory. Bare wood is showing in small sections. Can I use any old varnish to reseal? Being that it's the checkering sanding is not really an option :)

This is why I like Synthetic stocks haha.

I'd use Birchwood - Casey Tru-Oil, applied lightly to the checkering with an old toothbrush.

Smooth parts of the stock, just rub a little in with your finger tip.

Unlike many clear varnish or bar top finishes, Tru-Oil is safe to use on any stock finish without worry of bubbling or ruining the old finish.

For touching up minor scrapes and gouges, I like to use a matching wood stain pen. You can get them in all colors and shades at your local Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
