    Try lacqueer thinner. This will get it off.

    lefty o: Correction...Use "lacquer" thinner instead of lacqueer thinner. Thought my spelling didn't look quite right. Had to go get my dictionary.

    lefty o: I just did a Browning A bolt stock. I used a product called Dads Easy Spray, got it at where else W-mart, works great and easy, just follow directions, can be used indoors, wash with water, but wear rubber gloves for sure.

    Lefty O,
    Best results that don't require a torch are, Certistrip from Brownells, or NAPA gasket remover from the auto parts store. With both products I use two applications. The first is removed with a putty knife or scraper, the second with a scotchbrite pad and water. This leaves a clean surface ready to start finish sanding. Works for me!
