I have a stock from ATI for a Mosin and have put 4 layers of paint on and want to take it off so for a long time on and off scapped it off with a kinfe blade. And i am at the bottom layer, how can i remove all or the majority of the paint?

I cannot speak from experience, but I have been told that brake cleaner does the job for removing paint from plastic.

As a shooter AND a model RR guy, it's brake FLUID, not brake CLEANER! Brake fluid takes the paint off of tiny plastic models without distorting the details, so it clearly won't hurt plastic.:)

Automotive paint stripper for fiberglass body panels is generally safe for composite stocks. Test it in a small area first. I've been using it on fiberglass usgi m14 stocks for years.

Well, thanks for clarifying that! I knew it was one of the two. I have certainly noticed brake fluid eating the paint from my 4-wheeler's handlebar.
