Thanks man. Did these for practice before refinishing the grips on my colt navy replica. Kept it traditional with a tung oil finish.

I like to use a product called citri-strip. It works great and is non toxic. That is good if your work space is in your home like mine.

Probably safe to say its not something you are going to shoot right? I'd say just leave it and display it anyway. Great conversation piece.
