First off, thanks to all of you for your contributions to this board. I stumbled on this board a few months ago after google brought me here while doing some research on another firearm I own. After reading some posts and seeing some pics, I started down a path of curiosity. Now here I am. I just purchased my first Sako about a week ago from a local seller--an L579 deluxe in 243 (at what I believe to be a great deal). I can't stop holding it. The other morning I found myself waking up at 2:00 in the morning with the urge to go hold it, which I did. I feel like a kid after Christmas. It's a Garcia import, so I was a little disappointed after doing more research and finding that they're not as desirable. Anyway, the gun is in good condition, but the stock is a little dull. Is this because the varnish (or whatever it is) is wearing off, or is it because it needs a good stock cleaning? If so, what product and procedure do you use to first clean the stock, then to make it shine? Thanks for any advice.
