oil eaters may work and they have an enzyme based, may be oil eaters brand, that will get rid of all the oil

It ain't inexpensive.

I thought about submersing it in Naphtha for a day or two, but I couldn't afford $9.00 per gallon.

I sure can't afford $40.44 per gallon. Thanks for the link, though, I may have to use it someday.

Be very careful when trying to get all of the oil out of your stock. You need to remember that this wood's pretty old and has been like this a very long time (most likely).

There are purists out there that will frown against using oven cleaner becuase they say it burns the fibers of the wood and turns it green or gray. I have used it with a lot of success.

I would not try to get it all out and end up with a brittle dry piece of wood. After all, if you are wnating to restore the finish, you're likely going to be putting ahand rubbed "oil" finish back on it.

I spray oven cleaner on mine several times over the course of several hours. How I do it is: spray down.. let soak for 30 mins to an hour... hose down with HOT water... let dry and repeat. If it all does not come out, no matter because It will be no issue when I go through the restoration process.

I've even run stocks through the dishwasher full cycle (with wifes permission of course) with no ill effects.

Well, I decided that the oil/grease stain would add character, so, I put two coats of the finish on. Then I noticed that I was using clear lacquer, not polyurethane.
I used more E-Z Off. After this process was over and the stock was clean and dry, low and behold, there is no oil stain and it does not feel waxy. I do not know what happened.

I do appreciate the suggestions. I have made a list of them, for later reference, because I will buy more Mosin Nagants.
Thanks to all,

Mule.

Again, my mistake.
Most of it is gone. What is left is in other locations, and not as visible.
I am going to go ahead and apply the Polyurethane tomorrow, at least, start tomorrow.

I remember when we hadda degrease a ma Deuce we used low pressure steam. i put a neoprene fuel line on the spigot of my pressure cooker and a piece of crimped steel fuel line as a nozzle and blew steam at my SKS using a Coleman stove to heat the boiler

say goodbye to any cartouches! The Rooshian you have was originally finished with shellac and you might start by swabbing it with denatured alcohol so the oilishness wont be sealed intot he wood

Hummm, B 12? used it on an old Harley Pan Head I had some years back. It was the greatest at oil removal ( simple green was good also) leaving all the metal and chrome spot free without and residues or flim. Not a clue of wood reactions, but couldn't be worst then some of the others listed. Driving those oils out of the wood what ever method, will take multiple attemps and depending on how pourous the wood is, you may not get the darkness removed. Heat like placing it in a black plastic bag, and wipe it down with a rag repeatedly on a hot day, drives most out most of it. Not a clue of the cat litter, but it sounds like it could be a good aide to keep the driven to the surface oils from re entry back into the wood.
