There are a few ways to clean a sticky synthetic gun stock:

  • You can try using a mild detergent, such as dish soap, and warm water. Wet a cloth with the detergent and wipe down the stock until the sticky residue is gone.
  • You can also try using rubbing alcohol or acetone to remove the stickiness. However, be careful when using these chemicals, as they can be harmful if ingested or come into contact with your skin. Always read the instructions on the product before using it.
  • You can try lightly sanding down the stock with sandpaper to remove the gunk buildup. Be sure to use fine-grit sandpaper for this method.

First, try spraying the stock with a light coating of cooking oil. The oil will help loosen the adhesive.

Next, try using a soft cloth to apply some acetone nail polish remover to the stock. The acetone should break down the adhesive.

Finally, if both of those methods don’t work, you can try using a stronger solvent like paint thinner or lacquer thinner. Be sure to test any solvent on an inconspicuous area of the stock first to make sure it doesn’t damage the material.

If the stock is dirty or covered in a sticky substance, you can start by spraying it with a degreaser such as WD-40. Let the degreaser sit for a few minutes, and then use a paper towel or cloth to wipe it clean.

You may also want to try using some rubbing alcohol to clean the stock. Simply soak a cloth in alcohol and wipe down the stock until it’s clean. Be sure to let the stock dry completely before using it again.

The first step is to identify the type of adhesive that is sticking to the gun stock.

  • Is it a water-soluble adhesive, like super glue?
  • Or is it a non-water soluble adhesive, like epoxy?

If it is a water-soluble adhesive, then you can try cleaning it off with warm water and soap. If it is a non-water soluble adhesive, then you will need to use an appropriate solvent to dissolve the adhesive.

Once the adhesive has been removed, you can clean the gunstock with some mild detergent and warm water. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly and allow it to dry completely before reassembling the gun.

1. The simplest way is to use mineral spirits or paint thinner on a cloth. Be sure to test this on an inconspicuous area of the stock first to make sure it doesn’t damage the finish.

2. If you don’t have any mineral spirits or paint thinner, you can also try using denatured alcohol or acetone on a cloth. Again, be sure to test this in an inconspicuous area first.

3. If you’re stuck, you can try using dish soap and water on a cloth. But be warned that this may damage the finish of your stock.

The first thing you should try is using some hot water and dish soap.

Simply wet the stock and add a small amount of dish soap. Rub the stock gently with your hands, making sure to get all of the dirt and grime off. Rinse the stock with hot water and let it dry.

If that doesn’t work, you can try using WD-40.

Spray WD-40 onto a cloth and rub it into the stock. Let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe it off with another cloth. Rinse with hot water and let it dry.
