old english scratch remover yes or no
 
hi im trying to figure out if using old english scratch remover on the stock of a gun will devaluate it. any input would be appreciated

I hate giving this type of answer, but....

It depends. A high gloss varnish or shellac could absorb some under the coating and start peeling. An "oiled" stock may be no problem.

I would suggest that you find a small area that is not readily seen and try a dab.

I've used it on old beat-up guns to make them look better. Sometimes it makes a world of difference.

Have to agree- As far as "devaluate it" - No if its used on compatable wood, color & finish. I've used it ---

Use the Old English for Light colored finishes regardless of the color or the original finish. The Old English for dark colored woods turns bare wood black.
