Removing poly finish?

I have a Savage Model 99F that has beautiful wood covered by aging, cracking polyeurathane. I have the wood removed and am ready to strip the finish. Will laquer thinner disolve the polyeurathane, or do I need something stronger?

Noban, polyurethane will come off with any "paint remover." The old methylene chloride-based ones work best. The new environmentally friendly ones take longer. Get the polluting kind, you wont regret it.

Then check out and click on "NOTES". Follow the "Gunplumbers guide to wood stock restoration" link. The slurry sanding method works great...

Good luck
