Scuffs on nylon stock .

What would be the best thing to use, to buff out scuff marks,
on a nylon stock ?
Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure. And I don't mean to sound trite, but the reason nylon stocks exist is because they can get scratched up and not detrimentally effect their performance. If you want pretty.....wood. If you want "takes a licking and keeps on ticking"....nylon.

    Dings. That's the beauty of nylon.

    Like Mike says, sure, but why? Can you 'catch' the scuffs with your fingernail? If so, they are deeper than what I know as a scuff and have gone into the scratch realm of things. Depending on the depth of the scuff, a Scotch-Brite abrasive cloth will smooth things nicely, but the appearance will become dull or even cloudy. If you care to paint it, you can really pretty it up again, but the question is...what kind of work are you wanting to put into this? Me, I'd leave things as they are. I've worked hard for the gray hair I have, (took almost 46 years to get it this way!) and trying to go back to the blonde of my boyhood seems wrong. That stock is the same way. It's got a story to tell. It's got character!

    ArmorAll or some similar car care product?

    I had a Nylon 66 that had scratches on it. I buffed them out with a felt buffing pad and rouge.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    I used to polish up the patrol car overhead light bar with 'Brasso' ( brass polish). I also use it on the Jeeps headlight covers to polish out scratches.

    Don't know how it would work on 'Nylon'. If you do find a suitable product, polish slowly by hand, don't use an electric polisher. Heat caused by friction will damage the stock.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
