I have a Russian type 3 kit the kit was used by the PLO, after 25 years of fighting that finnish is in the stock very deep ........well I took all the finnish of with stripper but the stock is still dark.... any tips on how to lighten the stock up so it can accept some new finnish.

Make sure all the finish is off and boil some water, let the water cool slightly, add a healthy amount of bleach and let them soak for about 2-3 hours. Mine looked like pine after that.

Copy and paste this to get the real story on restoration. Takes over an hour to read but well worth it. Good luck. http://gunscience.com/VARNISH/frame.htm?CONTENTS_ie.htm

I have nothing to do for a few hours so I'll take the one that takes the longest I will report back in 2-3 hours
