Miroku scratch repair

    Recommended Posts

    There’s a couple of scratches on my MK70. 

    Someone has told me it’s not an oil finish. It’s not a gloss finish, more satin. 

    A light sand or wire wool would fix it but how would I finish it afterwards if it’s not oil? 

     

    And ideas/advice?

    Put a gloss finish on and knock it back with oooo grade wire wool to achieve the same finish.

    That’s not a bad idea. What is the standard finish on a miroku mk70

     Not a clue, but true oil would be about right after being knocked back.

    If its anything like my MK70 (2014  model) its an oil finish but they seem to vary.  On previous occasions I have used ultra fine wire wool and also TCUT to dress down small scratches and then apply a small amount of boiled linseed oil using your finger to finish it.  Use a small amount and rub it until your finger gets hot, and re apply if needed.  

    But its a gun and its going to get minor scratches with use, unless its a nasty gouge I wouldn't worry about it!

    I’m not too troubled by the scratches as they are ok the underside of the stock. They are noticeable and repairing them would leave the stock in almost perfect condition. 

     

    It’s grade 1, so is there a lacquer available that will match or am I best off to paint in a bit of gloss finish and flat it back as previously suggested?

    My brother recently had a small dink taken out of the forend of his two month old 525.  He took it to a French polisher rather than a gunsmith/stocker.  I have yet to see the repair but apparently it's invisible.

    Good luck,

    Tim
