I just did a quick refinish/repair on a on a fox Sterlingworth shotgun. The original finish was very bad as can be seen in the photos. I used 190 proof Everclear alcohol, rags, a tooth brush and a dental pick to do the job. The Everclear is 95% alcohol and melted away the old finish. I used the tooth brush and the dental pick to clean out the checkering I was amazed at how well it worked. I am going to leave the stock the way it is, it looks like it match's the rest of the gun.
