A short time ago I picked up a standard frame 1100 in 20 guage. I have since torn it down and started to refinish it. So far I have completed the stock. I stripped it down with a lot of chemical stripper, that Remington finish is tough! Then I sanded, down to 400 and filled the grain. After that, lots of tru oil and ended up pretty happy. The forend is almost done, but I wanted to get some opinions on the stock. I bought some Borchwood Casey conditioner that will knock the shine down a little, but now I'm thinkin' I really like the shine. Should I just hit it with some good paste wax instead? More pics to come as the project continues.

Try some of Brownells rubbing compounds. Triple F will kill the shine, giving a nice satin finish. Five F will produce a smooth, glossy finish.

It looks real nice. I would give it a coat of old english scratch remover. I give all my new guns a coat of Old English. I don't hesitate to beat briers down with the butt of my gun. Still all my guns look pretty good, some of them I have had for over 20 years. The old english matches better if the surface gets a coat before scratching it to the bare wood.
