Bohunr, how can you even consider destroying that classic example of genuine Pennsylvania folk art?

i used the citri strip. worked like a champ. i cleaned the stock with soap and water and then acetone. so far i have sanded it with 60 grit all the way to 220, going to work my way up to 400.


i got a limbsaver air tech recoil pad on the way. they said if that doesnt work to call them back and they will send a Nitro Grind-to-fit recoil pad. that one is made for the big safari rifles


i will take some photos this weekend and post the process here.

Bohnr.....FWIW, I've build a few flintlock rifles from scratch. The most you need to go on your stock is 220 grit. After you do several applications of your finish (Tru-oil or whatever you prefer) the wood grain will fill with your applications and come out fine 'n dandy!!

sounds good. i am just not sure how to finish the stock yet. it depends on what they do with the barrel and receiver. the wood looks like walnut. i am leaning towards a tung oil finish instead of staining it.

Use Birchwood Casey True oil. Apply it with your finger tips and rub with 000 0r 000 steel wool after it dries between coats. Put at least 10 to 12 coats rubbing with steel wool between them. You will get a nice finish.

Once you do your final coat, you will have a glass like high gloss finish. If that's what you want, you're done, but if you prefer a satin finish, rub it out with Birchwood Casey Stock Sheen & Conditioner.

Or rub it with rotten stone, either one will cut the gloss..

ive got a question as how to remove a matte finish on a rifle. i have a Remington 700 varmit rifle that came with a matte finish and would like to have it just blued. is there any way to remove the matte finish on the barrel and action? will the barrel and action have to be reblued?

Nail Polish remover. Worked for me on an old Auto5 . Took camo paint off metal without harming blue and off browning wood finish without reducing shine.
