    Seems everyone is asking, but nobody has the answer. I scratched my 22-250 Forester stock when it fell over in my gun room. Through the finish and into the grain... sad, but true... So this stock is one of the Garcia "STICKY" finishes. And so I'd like to refinish it with an oil finish. I know it's time intensive, but I'm retired... lots of time. Especially on these Eastern NC rainy days... Does anyone know what will strip the finish?

    Hello Dave,

    I just saw this. I had to refinish my newly acquired Finnwolf last year. You must use a stripper that will take off urethane. Don’t get a stripper that only strips paint, varnish, and shellac. You’ll be there forever. It’s apparent that Sako used a tough heavy finish on their “Garcia era rifles”

    Trap...
