Apparently last time I did yearly maintenance on two of my rifles (a Remington 700sps and a Savage Anschutz 164M) the anti-corrosion bags got switched. One bag is probably from 1968 and the other from 2012 but one has to be as good as the other right? WRONG! It appears the rubber recoil pad included with the SPS stock has completely deformed and melted to the old bag. My course of action is obviously to replace the pad, but some of the rubber goo has attached itself to the rest of the stock and I would like to try to save the stock as I planned on bedding it with some lead shot. All of the chemical solutions I can think of risk also damaging the plastic. Any recommendations for agents that might remove the rubber goo and not damage the stock? Secondly, the newer bag seems to have either left residue or damaged the finish on the .22 and I was wondering if anyone has experience with this sort of damage and what was done. Thanks!
