I have thought about that and started showing my friends at home most of the conversation was spent on the grips

If The 700 still has finish on it you can rub it with your bare hand and brighten up a dull finish. It takes a lot of rubbing but saves stripping and refinishing while keeping the original.

Birchwood Casey stock wax also works well for polishing the finish and may help with some protection for those thin spots.
