Have a CZ Redhead, with a satin varnish finish as a second clay gun for guests
Has a two inch light scratch on forearm just lifting the finish, but not into the wood

I would like to refinish the stock and forearm and change to an oil finish, but I am concerned that since the wood has been previously varnished, after it is stripped the wood won't take up the Oil evenly and I may end up with a splotchy finish (a mess)

After varnish removal I have read about soaking in acetone to extract any remaining oil/ varnish

Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Yes the acetone soak will remove soaked in oil. Larry Potterfield has a video on this at YouTube.com

Always a chance of a splotch. Just clean it up and restart. Take your time.
