C3 and the OldMan pretty much mirror my thoughts on stripping the stock and the process of doing it. another point i will add, is Marlin used for many years a clear finish on their stocks called MarShield. it may take a couple of applications of stripper to remove this finish as it is pretty tough. i just refinished my M60 several months ago and it took three applications to remove all of it. i did sand mine down lightly before applying the stain, but mine had no checkering or engravings on it.

start with alcohol to clean off the dirt and oil several wipe downs stay away from the sandpaper. next what kind of finish did it have and what do you want now?
