Default Remy 1100 gloss finish

Although I've done many a restoration/refinishing project, I've yet to do a Remy 1100. What is the best finishing product to use to get the high gloss durable finish that comes on the 1100/870's from the factory?? I'm thinking poly but not 100% on this.

Please advise and thanks in advance...

When I want a high gloss finish I lean to the polyurethane. I'm sure many will disagree with this but I've had excellent results. WhenI have done this I have found sprays are horrible compared to a brush on method.

Yes, I have done a few with polyurethane with excellent results also, but I use a spray gun to apply the finish.

I've been happy with Tru-Oil. Steel wool between coats with a final coat or two of beeswax.

Thanks guys... I've also leaned toward the spraying on of the poly.. I also like the Tru-Oil suggestion. I used that on an A5 Browning and it came out very nice.

Most of the factory high gloss finishes are sprayed on poly.
