Birchwood Casey Gunscrubber On Wood

Note: This is about both shotguns and rifles, so I'm not sure which sub-forum to post this under.
A gunwriter wrote about a quick way to clean a pump or semi auto's action. He said take the barrel off (if a shotgun), point the gun down over newspaper, then spray Birchwood Casey Gunscrubber in the action, watch the muck run out, and then lightly oil. So I was wondering that if I do this on a gun with nice wood, and get gunscrubber on the wood, would it eat the finish off it.

Without knowing what type of finish you have on your shotgun, Gunscrubber is very capable of removing some finishes. If you don't want to take the action apart, you can remove the butt stock by loosening one of the screws in the recoil pad and removing the other. Then you'll see a hole in the stock with a screw head showing, unscrew the bolt and pull the stock off. Cover or remove the fore end and spray away.
