BAR .22 Stock has turned to a milky color, fixes?



Log in to see fewer ads
My late 70's to early 80's NIB BAR .22 failed my inspection! I've not had it out of the box in a longtime, likely 10+ years. I saw another thread here recently that reminded me about it and took it out of the box, to my surprise parts of the stock have turned a milky color. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if so what is the fix short of a complete stock refinish? To be clear this is the original factory finish...a very heavy clear coat that is nicely done from the factory.

If the factory epoxy finish has become hazy, it is likely going to require a refinish. Current wisdom here on RFC indicates using a heat gun and a scraper is the easiest way to remove the old finish. There is a thread about doing just that on a BL-22 you can search for.

You might want to try the advice here for a cured finish before resorting to stripping the stock. It can't hurt, and might fix the problem.

You could also rub it down with several coats of balistol. I've read that can perform miracles.

Let it sit out in air and dry for severL days. Then try one of these kinfif products https://www.amazon.com/Homax-Group-2...s%2C184&sr=8-3

And then , if yo get it out, wax your stocks and metal with something like this https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/..._AC_SX679_.jpg

Cardboard boxes can be a problem .

I don't think you need a refinish.
I think some Flitz would take away the haze.
