Generally I treat the tip as it was wood. They have always sanded and finished fine.

Good luck and post pics. We love pretty walnut around here! :)

Remington's plastic finish will clog sandpaper very quickly.. Use a propane torch to curdle the plastic then scrape it of with a scraper or a butcher knife. A light sanding will clean up any leftovers and steel wool will polish the wood before starting the finishing.. Pics are always appreciated.

The only time that I sand a gunstock is when a repaired section needs to be addressed; otherwise, I use the K.I.S.S. system - IOW, a chemical stripper.


Homer Formby's Furniture works on most non-epoxy finishes, via simply following the can's directions.





Citristrip works better for epoxy finishes (Browning, Remington, Weatherby, etc, etc).









I use the same tool for removing the finish as I do when applying one - OOOO grade steel wool pads.
