Most of the high gloss wood finishes are a polyurethane. It is basically a clear plastic coating over the wood. It used to be pretty common on Remington and Weatherby firearms. It is not as popular as it used to be. Most people prefer the more subdued look.

It is possible to rub the wood down with a very fine steel wool to knock some of the shine off without completely removing the finish. Go slow, the more you rub, the more finish you remove. If you get down to bare wood then it will need to be refinished.
