win 67 stock finish

several of the 67 stocks in the herd seem to have a deteriorating finish, kinda sticky /gummy residue. Any suggestions to restore them to original??

It may just be dirt and oil from years of handling. I use warm water with a little simple green in it and a soft cloth to clean. Be sure to dry good after.
Have a great day
Jay

Sticky/gummy came on a couple of mine that had too thick of a basically linseed oil finish. It would never harden up so I used gloves and mineral spirit rags to pull it off the surface with a quick finish wipe with lacquer thinner rags. The wood looks Lots Better without that junk on top!
I let the wood be like that for some months and it seemed to be dry and stable so once the humidity was low I used some TruOil finish. It has hardeners and done in a thin coat, hand rubbed in, let to dry well and repeat for about 1/2doz. worked well. They have been fine for about 30yrs now.

Last couple I did was strip them with citristrip, run them through a hot water dishwasher (no detergent). This really helps get in small dings, scratches out. After it is dry of course, I hit with it with coats of formsbys low gloss tung oil til I get it where I like it. Factory finish, no...but it certainly comes close to looking the part. Just had to do a model 55 that was all jacked up, bet the stock was three different colors.

The stocks were originally finished with lacquer which is wonderful to deal with as it's easy to strip off and easy to re-apply to. Check out the finishing discussions by noremf (George) down in the "Stocks: Making, Repairing, Refinishing, Modifying, and Bedding" section of this forum. George is no longer with us having passed away recently but he sure knew his way around wood finishing!
