I had finished shooting a round of SC today with my 20ga CXS.
We were unloading the cart at the vehicles and a young gentleman was going to be helpful and hand me my gun off the cart.
Well, he let it slip out of his hand and dropped it :x
Damage is done, so now does anyone have a suggestion on what can be done to repair it or make it less noticable ?
Thanks

I’m interested too. I have a few dents and dings in a couple of my brownings and all the wood has that off color kind of white to it. I wouldn’t mind the ding if I could make it blend in a little more. Is there a good stock oil that could clean that up?

Aside from stripping the finish and steaming the dents out, then refinishing. I don’t know how to fix that. You could always buy a new stock but odds are it’s going to get damaged again down the line. Hence why I just want to make them blend in color wise.

On the finish dents/scratches in the poly coat, some clear nail lacquer can clean them up nicely. Deeper than the finish, it’s a lot more involved.

Lads,

I've had good luck using coloured waxes, the stuff used for fine furniture repairs. It works nicely because you can find the exact shade, and fill the ding to the correct level too.

They come in a pack of differing colours that you can mix to the right hue. The pic below is of the ones available in UK, I'm sure something similar will be on sale Stateside. Google "Liberon" and see what you come up with.

Thanks Curly,

Thanks for the kind words.

The white spot occurs because the finish has separated from the dent. So the damaged finish has to be removed, the dent repaired then the finish can be fixed.

Part of the process is figuring out what the finish is. Lacquer, poly or oil. They are not compatible with each other.

My comments were the truth, not just being kind. You are tops in my opinion.
