    I have a new rifle with a Bell & Carlson stock.I want to repaint the stock,but the current finish has a texture that will take a lot of work to sand down.It looks like a textured paint,and scrapes off,so I am thinking I may be able to use a commercial stripper to remove it.I am concerned though,that the stripper may damage the stock underneath.Has anyone used a stripper to remove paint on a B&C stock? On a side note,I also want to sharpen up the checkering before the paint job.Has anyone tried this on the same stock?

    I would sand the rough finish smooth. With non loading paper, it sands quickly. I have not tried to rechecker, so can't help you there.
