The last summer was one of the driest ever, but the surest way to get rain is to leave your Ruger 10-22 on your four-wheeler for 3 days in which during these 3 days it rained twice. The rain worped the lamenent stock pretty bad. The scope finally dried out but it was off Zero. So much for a $30 Simmons. :34: The worp finally came out of the stock when it dried but the outside grain stood up pretty bad. The stock did not come apart so I think it can be refinished, but I do not have any experience with lamenent. Just so you know, 97 degrees with 2" of rain, 100% humidity is not a good place to store guns, especially lamenent. Please help.

six shot you just taught me something good and thats to never buy a Laminate stock gun !
Some of the gun manufacture tout them to be imprevalous to water like composit stocks and apparently there not.
I would junk the stock and buy a nice composit style to your likeing.

With that said...

You lazy azz !!! :) LOL !! Don't ever leave a gun out in the rain again ! :)...A.H

Hey know problem and I hope you didn't mind me kidding with you.
Seriously can't you take a certain steel wool and rub down (off) the raised grain.
You should be able to slick that laminate stock back up to it's origenal finish.
With steel wool ...A.H

Use 0000 steel wool, then finish. There are many clear finishes.
