"Grippy" wood stock finish? (Factory 10-22)

I'm looking for something to make the finish on my old-ish 10-22 wood factory stock more "grippy" as in less slick. I'm finding that the forestock is failing to let me get a good grip in one position as my hand is sliding around under sling tension. Over time the factory finish has gotten quite slippery & I'm wondering if there is something I can use to remove the slip without messing up the appearance.

I'm familiar with the stick-on goodies, but don't like the look. Unlike my other stocks which have an oil finish this one is some kind of spray-on factory plastic/varnish/poly.

If your interested in removing that "shiny look" remove it. You will then have what we call a satin finish, which has a little more texture, it's less "slick". Also for some applications washing your hands and washing your stock carefully of course will help. There are some traction products you can also find at a paintstore, home depot, lowes,,,etc. And if you apply these correctly it'll help tremendously,, benchrest riflestocks sometimes have this product in logistical areas of the pistol, and foregrip.. Anyway's good luck!!
Thanks for coming!
