    I have a 10/22 that I am constantly tinkering with. I have sanded most of the finish off and it isn't going as smoothly as I had hoped. Some sections, mostly around the triggerguard, the original finish isn't coming completely off. Is there anything that I can use to take all the finish off. I want to put tongue oil or blo on the stock. It is the original stock and finish if that helps any. Any help or opinions are appreciated.

    Try a bug repallant with DEET in it...it'll peel the hide off almost any rifle's finish.

    It's why when you get all stick & sweaty when covered in Deet bug repellant,
    your stock starts getting gummy...and the finish starts coming off...
