I would also try mineral spirits, lacquer thinner, and acetone, in that order. Don't kid yourself, Goof Off is no more gentle than the above.

kfox75 was kind enough to offer a stock swap so all I have to worry about now are all the metal parts, the barrel, bolt and triger/housing.

It would be nice to get some before and after pics to document progress if you go through with all the work.

I'm almost embarrassed to post before pictures it looks so bad!

I'll put it back together and snap a few.

BTW it came with a Hawk 982 all for $100 and the only issues seem to be the paint jobs and the Hawk needs a magazine extender with a proper length spring.

+1, acetone and plastic almost never play well together.

Teh before pictures are really for the after. Then you can look back and say, "See how ugly this thing was before I fixed it back up". I've done a few guns that had been spray painted, dis assembled. had parts missing, etc. Then, when it's all done I hadn't taken any before pics, and there was nothing to show folks with regard to how far I had to go to get it to the finished state. I like to go to pawn shops and guns shops just looking to find a used gun that someone did something stupid but reversable to.

I would only use the acetone on the metal parts.

Someone showed me a Boyds Prairie Hunter Walnut stock for $119.00

It would make it seem more traditional/American.

It's on my Christmas list.

Maybe, maybe not. You could try it on an inside part that you don't see 1st.
