Gunstock oil finish
I was cleaning the bore in a brand new Bergara Woodsman rifle last night and inadvertently got “wipe out” brand solvent on the stock and didn’t notice this for quite some time. There are several 3/8” circles where apparently the nozzle flicked and left solvent on the stock. These spots are darker and duller. The stock has a very muted dull oil rubbed finish and I am uncertain as to how to try to correct this mistake.
Is there a way to lighten the darkened patches where the solvent soaked in?
What oil is used for a dull oil rubbed finish? I have used tru oil in the past and it builds up to a shiny finish. This stock has open grain and truly just looks like it was rubbed with a light oil and left to soak in.
Suggestions would be much appreciated. Wood finishing is not my strong point, and it just makes me sick that I have done this to a new rifle.
I appreciate the responses. I have attempted to contact Bergara for a week now and they do not respond, so it looks like I’ll have to give this a try based on your recommendations and what I have read.
