Stock Refinishing and Recheckering

The owner of this Beretta O/U did not like look or feel of the original factory spray-on poly finish that adorned his wood.  Since the factory finish is generally sprayed on after the robotic checkering is cut, it tends to fill in the checkering and reduce the effectiveness of it's grip.  He wanted a hand rubbed oil finish, and this was the end result.

After the checkering was recut, a small amount of aniline dye was added to the finish brushed into it to provide a little bit of contrast.  The total time logged on this project was just under 18 hours.
