I have good luck with old english scratch remover. Old English works pretty good. You can rub on more coats of OE as you use the gun. It will look better in time if you keep rubbing. The bolt action shotguns are tough at turkey shoots. Everyone around here has a Marlin Goose gun for turkey shoots.

You might find an old stock at a gun show and have a project fitting your barreled action to it. You could then shoot it single shot.
Married 30 yrs, I'm starting to think it might work out.
