The finish was pretty good on the two I have. I put one on a 204 Savage and one on a Savage muzzleloader.
If you want a little more shine you can use some automotive polishing compound followed by a good wax and it will make it pretty slick. Not like auto clear, but still pretty darn good.
Here is my 204, it now wears a better scope and these pics were pre-polishing. Next up is Duracoat for the action and bead blasting the barrel late summer sometime.
I pillar and Devcon bedded mine and it has held up extremely well.
