Clear Coat over Factory Finish?

I just Purchased a Ruger LTV, and the stock has a Flat Finish. Can I just degrease and shoot a Clear Coat over it?

SantaFe can you tell me what you used to degrease ? Your stock looks great- my LVT could use the same. Thanks !

i wiped it down really good with mineral spirits, maybe two or three times. seemed to do the trick. stretch out the true oil in thin coats, i let it dry 24 hours between coats. i think i did 3 coats on this one. 0000 steel between coats. if you want more depth and shine, keep on coating.
