How much would you expect to pay to have the wood stock on your gun refinished? Ya know to get all them scratches and dings out, and to have that brand new look back? $50? $75? $100? or more?

I do some wood work and I know that it should be common practice to finish the end grain of the wood, as to seal it off.
i thought you done wood working, if so there is a wood working program that will figure this in for you. it is called cultist plus you can down a free version on their web site.

That would all depend on what results you want. You can get some sandpaper and varnish in a spray can down at Home Depot for less than $20. Take an afternoon and you can do it yourself.

No help fellas. I have a guy at work that wants me to finish his gun now that I have redone mine. GRRRRR. :x

Mine took me three days and about four total hours. I am just wondering what I should charge him. I was thinking $100 but that to me seems steep. I just dont want to offend him with a really high price, but then again I dont wanna screw my self either. Just wondering what you would pay if you werent able or were just to lazy to do it on your own.

the program that I mentioned earlier in the above post will determine this out for you. it uses standard pricing fro shop materials, and wages.
But you will have to fill in the blanks. seeing how you are the only who knows the answers.

I recently refinished one. I took the stock off and sanded it, then re-stained a portion of it, and put 4 coats of polyurethane varnish on it. It took 5 days because of drying between coats. I expect that finish to last many years as the polyurethane varnish is very durable stuff. Actual time invested probably about 3 hours. What's your time worth?

60 to 100 bucks sounds OK to me.
