    I want a chemical stripper to take off the space age strong-as-steel plastic finish on my Remington 700 BDL stock.

    Suggestions?

    Dfaris,

    Thanx for the link.

    My Remington stock has a black plastic forend tip. Do I need to protect that, somehow?

    thanx.

    I'd test it with a tiny drop of whatever stripper you use.
    Usually, the tips are pretty solvent-proof.

    I've used regular paint strippers on older Remingtons with shiny finishes.
