Just clean the wood and then wipe some medium walnut stain all over the entire stock.  It will stain the light spots and leave some on the rest of the gun.  If you don’t like this look you haven’t got much time or money invested.

 I would first wipe it with Scott’s Liquid Gold “without lemon”. It won’t make it look like new but it will hid a lot of scratches. It’s a light clear petroleum product that won’t hurt the finish on wood or metal.  Just spray it on and wipe it, don’t soak it. If your not happy with that you can use it on your old furniture. I spray it on a sheep skin and use it as a gun wipe down. T/R

That’s a good idea.  Anything is better than sanding and refinishing.  You’d be surprised what almost any oil would do to hide the scratches.

You might try a product called Dr. Woodwell Wood Elixir.  You can find it on the net.  I used it quite a bit back in the day on antique furniture.  Ive also used Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil for different projects.  I wouldnt go so far as to strip and refinish, there are other options that are better.
