Default Refinishing receiver

Hello folks.

My gun fell off the rack and caused couple of blemishes on the silver receiver.
Good thing it didn't hit the engraving.

Will it a possibility to use some kind of solvent to blend it back or restore it.
It isn't deep but it's sad.

Hmmm. The Lone Ranger used silver bullets- you got a silver GUN?

We need a hint what the reciever is made of- and trust me, you do not want to fool with ANY solvent that would dissolve metal. Not if you value fingers and lungs.

It MAY be possible to REDUCE the visible damage by polishing (Flitz is pretty good)

However, we need some more info and some pics.

Silver? Really?

Oh ya.

Everybody at the range loves those and me too.

I'm using it temporarily till I find an O/U for competition but now this thing got scratched also I noticed a little blemish on the wood I don't know how to treat that either.

I don't think Benelli makes O/U. Franchi may be good.

from what i can see you may have to live with the bubu satin is not an easy finish to blend . polish it out with a dremmel and fine compound then use a blaster with glass beads a fine tip and low press to try to blend it good luck . also imho for an o/u get a b gun

Yea franchi makes a nice over/under but I'm more of a turkey hunting automatic guy but if I wad gonna buy a hi end over/under it would be a Browning no doubt but if I were to buy a nice clay Target gun it would still be a benelli

Browning states that you must have a choke on all the time.
Is there a special choke for rifled slugs.

No just a modified or bigger choke will work
