Oh, i misunderstood. Your going to have to do some sanding to get rid of the stain if your looking to change colours radically. The more gritty the paper the more its going to cut into the wood.
I would try light sanding with 600+ grit in that area. There are some chemical strippers that will remove the finish without sanding.
Thats the best i got. Im still a noob at stock finishing ive only done one so far. If you havent done it before i would recomend practice refinishing something you dont care too much about.
Im currently working on a cheap mosin 91/30 as my first project. If i screw it up and the finish peels off or something im only out time and a 100$ on the gun... so far it seems to be going well.
Maybe that will help ya.
