Gunsmith, Gun Repair and Refinishing
serving Chattanooga & Southeast Tennessee
We can refinish you fine firearm stock to your desire.
The finishes vary depending on customer preferences. The stock finishes available are a satin finish,
high gloss finish, oil finish, or custom coatings depending on you need.
For starters, chemically removing the finish and
cleaning the wood is the only way to ensure a minimal amount of wood will be removed. This is
done to ensure the stock’s transition to the firearm is maintained. We remove all dents by
steaming the piece and use minimal sanding techniques to remove blemishes in the wood. These
techniques will keep the stock in the original factory dimensions while still looking new. The
wood’s original color and finish are maintained. The wood is brought back to its original
sharpness. This finish is sanded with a fine grit paper; filler is added where needed then lightly
sanded. From this point on, any finish can be applied to bring your gun’s stock to the desired
look and feel you desire.
