Stripping a Boyd’s AT1 Stock



Log in to see fewer ads
Has anyone ever stripped a Boyd’s AT1 stock. I just got a new one and I would like to do my own finish. I’m guessing it is a satin lacquer. Another thing, can all the hardware be removed without messing it up. The outside part of the adjustment buttons seems to be there to stay, unless it is screwed down on the inside of the stock.

I ended up putting 3 coats of Truoil and I also added a 1/2” walnut spacer behind the rubber recoil pad. Now, the adjustable butt hardware doesn’t look like it’s gonna fall out of the stock, when the LOP is 14”. I think it just looks better. The Boyd’s AT One stock is a nice setup, for the price. This stock was a little pricier because I wanted a solid wood.

Looks nice. I understand your first post now that you mention SOLID WOOD; I was thinking laminated.

So, you put the Tru-oil on top of the old finish? Must have been a little tricky. I did that on a CZ452 Lux and it improved it.

I removed all of the hardware and dulled the finish with steel wool and then I applied a few coats of Truoil. I’m more a fan of glossy wood than the satin look.
Today, I took the rifle to the range and after shooting off the bench, decided the grip area is gonna need a little TLC. I’m sure the hunter won’t be as picky, but the edges of the polymer needs to be a little smoother.
