    Russian Wood Repairs

    I was always curious about the mark on my gun. It never even came close to coming off when I refinished the stock so it goes deep. Is it just a blemish, or is it a repair? Is it tar?

    When I die, my atoms will come undone; ill be space dust, once again. The wind will carry me; Scatter me everywhere; Like dandelions in the springtime. Ill visit worlds and alien moons; It will be so damn poetic... Until I land on your sandwich.

    It Looks like pocket of resin. This can be common in laminated stocks because of voids in the plys of wood. Thats what i think, or it was filled when they bored the bolt hole.
    You said you refinished the stock. A quality control trick is to use the "less than perfect" stocks for darker finish colours because it hides the imperfections. If you went with the lighter finish you exposed the flaw.

    It was just as clear before i refinished. Enough to make the seller let me know before i bought. Yea the original finish was dark.
