I sand all my stocks to remove the finish. Never had a problem yet. You don't sand stocks with 80 grit on a palm sander. You start with 120 grit with a foam block. You just need to take care on the edges and corners just like sanding and buffing a car. Never sand or buff on to an edge sand or buff off of it. I will work my stocks down to 400 grit then hit them with water and 600 grit for a final smooth as butter feel.

Then I hand rub a coat of stain or two depending on how dark I want the stock. Then I use DEFT Spray Lacquer sanding sealer then semigloss or gloss spray Lacquer if it is not a hunting stock.

Brown alcohol based leather dye will give you the slight reddish look.

Yes we do, rona and home hardware is pretty much all we got haha. Well anyways, awesome! Most of the suggestions (product wise) aren't really of use since I can't get the products here without ordering online! Thank you!

So if you get some, just brush it on (I used an old tooth brush) and kept it wet. As INTHESHOP suggested, get some plastic wrap and wrap your stock up to keep the air from drying out the paste, that way it keeps working and you wont have to use as much.

Then wipe off with a rag. Was very easy to do. Good luck
