Hi,its been a while since I posted here and I would like to tap into the collective ideas of this forum and ask a question that has been on my mind lately.

Should I completely strip the original varnish to remove the odd scratch and bump found on a used but otherwise standard FWB 300s with a walnut stock?
Will the complete removal of the factory finish on the stock reduce the airgun's value because it would no longer be in its original state?
Any ideas how to best tackle the stippled area?

I am really tempted to go for stripping the wood bare and re-do using a semi matt natural oil finish.

Thanks in anticipation...
