I have a couple of newer Marlins with checkered stocks and forearms. However, the checkering looks like it's debossed, rather than cut. Has anyone used a pointing tool to recut the grooves? If the wood is compressed, how does that turn out? It looks like 16 pitch, but that's not so important with a single row pointing tool.

I use my Dem-Bart checkering tools and have recut impressed checkering a few times, it came out looking much better but was as tedious as cutting new checkering, for me anyway.....

i was wondering the same thing. i have and older jm guide gun, and a new rem stainless, and the difference in checkering is like night and day. thought about picking up some checkering tools and playing with the extra stock and forend that i have lying around from the when remlin gave me a new set because of the horrible factory fit. perfect to experiment on.
