Get some heavy duty dish gloves also. That stripper will burn your skin if you get it on there. Easy off will burn like stink as well.

Thanks for the tips, Doc. I just learned that my surgical gloves from work just don't quite cut it.

So I guess I'll have to break out the 'big boy' gloves, as I have a dishwasher and no dish gloves.

One side is pretty much done, but with a tiny bit still in some of the bigger pores, I guess???




And a little bit of collateral damage on this side while removing the finish from the other side.

Anna, another tip i will give about paint stripper is this. keep it wet and don't let it dry out. if it dries out, it pretty much stops working. keeping it moist or wet will speed the action of the stripper.

Doc is right about the gloves. stripper can burn or blister the skin. not a pleasant feeling.

looks like you're off to a great start and just take you time.

Collateral damage or a head start. Whichever way you want to look at it.

Thanks guys for the encouragement. I'm getting excited about this.

Here is the beginning of the left hand side



It is getting a little windy outside and I think as Axxe said the drying out in some areas has made the remover stop working. So I will next begin to do a second coat of stripper on the stock again to remove the remainder spots.

Butt stock cut to skeletal limitations = trigger pull and weight of said rifle.

paint stripper work better when it's cooler outside and you do need fresh air as the fumes can get to you. you're doing great and making progress. don't worry about trying to get if off with one application of the paint stripper. i have done some in the past that even five or six didn't get the job done.

just think in a few days, you'll have a new looking rifle!

thanks for posting the pictures as you refinish the stock. will make a fine tutorial for others to follow in the future.
