OP, if stock wear bothers you, a good idea is to have one to shoot with and a 2nd one with no dents/dings for show when she's at home.

Anything you can use to smooth the surface, I like to "wet" sand with tung or BLO personally, 220/320/400 is as far as I go with 24hr cure intervals. I like Toms 1/3 stock wax as a top coat. 0000 Steel wool scrub with oil also works but as noted can leave steel fibers behind.

Of note, SAI uses Boyds stocks so it's not anything that Springfield does.
