I have the opportunity to purchase a used Choate tactical stock for my new rifle at a very good price, but it looks like someone smoked a bunch of crack and did a rattle can camo job attempt on it. Other than the paint, the stock is in very good condition. My question is this...How hard is it to remove the paint, and what is best stuff to use so as not to damage the original stock material? Would it be worth the trouble to remove the paint? New the stocks are 239-279 and this guy is asking $100.
Thanks

Acetone, and an abrasive pad. Acetone evaporates quickly, so be prepared to reapply to the abrasive pad.

Do you mean abrasive like a nylon dish scrubber, sos pad, or steel wool? How big of a pain is it?

Unless the quality improved in recent years, there are better options than Choate, and I can say that as I used one for a while. The stock was not rigid, which is important for accuracy.

For a better value option, B&C is much better quality.

A well bedded wood stock is better than Choate.

Dish scrubber.

I canít speak to the quality of the stock, but if youíre worried about the camo just repaint it. You could go right over the top with flat black or whatever color you choose. It would save a lot of headache.

Really? I have 4 of the Choate tactical stocks on both short and long action rifles. They are every bit as rigid as my chassis rifles.

They are heavy,and the ugly girl at the dance,but they are rigid as hell!

Some Choate stocks are lesser quality, but the Tactical is a great, solid, heavy stock. Great for a long range rifle.

I had the Ultimate Varmint, slightly different than Tactical and it was full AL block and rigid. The Tactical I think is built the same way. I got rid of mine because it could not be inlet for bottom metal (rookie mistake), aside from that, I liked it. For paint removal, acetone and Scotch Brite scrubber, or ignore it, ballistics don't care about pretty.

Why don't you just have it dipped? And Xylene will probably take that paint off.....
