I went to Outdoor World today looking to buy a 10/22 Deluxe and the only one that they had left was the display model, it was in perfect condition except for this big nick right on the side of the stock . I waited an hour in line so there was no way I was leaving that store empty handed, so I went ahead and purchased it despite there being that nick in the stock.

What can I do to remove the nick in the wood and make it seem like there was nothing ever there?

Also, because of the 5 day wait period I won't be able to pick it up until next Tuesday. I'm really sitting here regretting that I ever purchased it instead of just having them order me a new one and i'm seriously considering calling up and telling them to just keep it and give me my money back, that damn nick in the beautiful Deluxe stock is really getting on my nerves. They have a "all firearm sales are final" policy but since I haven't picked it up yet, i'm not sure if that applies.

If there is a way to get rid of the nick and make it seem like there was no nick in the stock, then i'm going to keep the rifle but if not then i'm going to try and get my money back or perhaps get a different 10/22.

Any special treatments or anything I can do to the stock to make the nick go away or something?

Please help!

Thanks

did you get a floor model discount?

They said it's against policy to give floor model discounts, I was pretty pissed but after I had to wait an hour in line there was NO WAY I was going to leave that store without buying something.

the steam and heat created by the iron will pull the dent out of the stock (theoretically)

Its worked for me in the past, but I'm not sure how your finish will hold up.

It's not really a dent, it's an actual nick in the stock where it looks like the top layer of wood is removed in that one little area.

From personal experience


furniture touch up markers.
Start out light, work your way progressively darker.
You will never even know the nick was there.
Hope this helps.
