I need some advice on how to touch up some scratches and dings that my rifle has acquired on the stock and the barrel. I know most people would just ignore these but everytime I look at them it makes my stomach knot up...so here are a couple of pictures and any advice you can lend would be greatly appreciated.

And, here is by far the worst of the damage..this one is actually into the wood and may require further attention..

Assuming it's not a collectible gun, you're down to a complete refinishing. You can try to touch up the blueing and sand and relaquer the damaged spots in the stock, but it will show.

The only thing I can think of to help you on the barrel is to have it bead blasted. The stock...well...put some gun chaps on it and don't worry about it! I know it is easier said than done but I am very OCD about my rifles. This is why I have put Gun Chaps on everyone I own

Steel wool with gun oil, then cold blue for the barrel.

Gunstock oil or danish oil or Old English touch-up on the stock.

You'll see them if you look, but the won't be glaring.
